The bean-brewing Boyd family has been serving up local, sustainable, and international brews for the Portlandic public since 1900. Parched patrons who stop by one of Boyd Coffee Company's locations can throw back a steamy glass of Italian espresso ($1.40 for a single, $1.70 for a double) for an early morning wake-up call, or opt for the decadent caffe white chocolate mocha for a sweet surge ($2.85 for 12 oz., $3.25 for 16 oz., and $3.70 for 20 oz.). The local coffeteria's menu also serves up teas (from $1.50), frozen beverages (from $3.40), and pastries ($1.25–$4.50) to appease indecisive stomach-minds.
The tea aficionados at J-Tea personally visit small farms in Taiwan and China, sampling a wide variety of seasonal oolong teas for stocking their cozy shop. The exact menu of specialty oolong, herbal, and green teas varies according to the season and the crop, including the chocolaty aged wu-yi, which is stored in earthen-clay vessels for 15 years to eliminate exposure to light and tea-crazed howler monkeys ($3/cup, $10/0.94 oz.). Infuse a hovering nose with the nutty aromas of smoke and wood of the charcoal-roasted oolong ($2/cup, $10/1.87 oz.), or savor the fruity latticework of the Emerald City oolong #38 ($3/cup, $8/oz.). Also available is an assortment of brew devices, tea mats, and storage vessels that transform any kitchen into a teahouse and keep the purity of tea from being corrupted by the rebellious teenage coffee beans in the next cabinet.
