Guapo Comics and Coffee

Guapo Comics and Cafe

I have a special place in my heart for this location.  In the 90’s I owned a comic book store and know what it is all about.  When I first saw this place I thought it was such a great idea.  The comics and coffee are owned separately sharing one space.  I love the idea.

There are a lot of local roasters to choose from in the Portland area and picking the right one was a long process for the coffee half of Guapo Comics and Coffee.  From the Menu:

“I considered all sorts of local roasters, but the only one I found to not only brew a great cup of strong coffee, but to also pull a shot worthy of Americanos and Mochas alike, was Allann Brothers.  Founded in 1972, Allann Brothers Roasts out of Albany and deals in Organic and Fair Trade beans. They are meticulous about the quality and conformity of the beans and roast to ensure that you always get the best each bean has to offer.”

And their Mochas?  “Mocha lovers will be happy to hear we use Ghirardelli white and milk chocolates. Instead of the pre-melted liquid syrups too often found, Ghirardelli premium powdered chocolate melts right in the cup. Our mochas verge on sinful.”

They also bring you a staggering selection of flavors to create a drink all your own. With 47 Torani syrups to choose from the possibilities are endless. Enjoy the tried and true Caramel, Vanilla, and Hazelnut flavors or go out on a limb and add Cheesecake or Butterscotch to your favorite drink. Any way you mix it we are happy to serve it. They also offer 12 Torani sugar free flavors so that nobody misses out on the fun.

Yelp loves them showing 4.5 stars out of 5.
