I usually visit Coava Coffee at least once a week or so. If you are in Portland and haven't you are missing out.
Apparently, it's also in the Japanese guide books too! I met a group of incredibly friendly folks who are visiting town and helped them out with a group photo.
The man at the back with the hat used to live here in town and spoke such great English, that I was surprised when I took a photo with his iPhone and everything was in Japanese!
They agreed to a group photo with my camera too and then took off for their next destination which I believe is Stumptown.
The man on the left hand side in the tan hat was carrying a well worn, and obviously loved Olympus OM1 and told me it had belonged to his grandfather. One more thing- the woman up front on the right side was all smiles except for when I took the shot.
All of them were incredibly friendly and I really hope they have a great visit. I gave them my website address too so If any of you stop by the site, Please do say "Hi" in the comments!
