With so many coffee shops in Portland, each of them must try and establish their unique character. Some of them choose to go for the glitzy corporate look, and others go for a more quirky ambiance. Blend Coffee aims at being a place where people can come to study or work. Btw, Do you know if coffee is toxic to pets?
A Nice Cafe To Sit All Day and Complete Some Work
The seating is arranged with plenty of power outlets. They also offer print on demand using “Print with Me.” It is a bright place to work or visit.

This Cafe Has Been Owned By Several Different People But Has Remained Successful
Blend Coffee has been in business under the current management for three-years. The current Asian American owners are the third owners of the company. When it was initially opened, it was a second coffee shop the guy had owned. He later closed the original business and concentrated on Blend Coffee. LLeter, a new owner, took over who refurbished the premises and did a rebranding. Now Matt Legasse and Phillip Yien, own the premises and are gradually adding their stamp on the business as well.
It’s a Great Environment With Friendly Staff
People who have visited the cafe over a few years say that the change in ownership has only improved the business. It still has excellent wifi, the kid’s corner, and comfortable seating.
Another great feature of the company is that the staff are very clued up on the menu and can answer any questions you ask.
Big Supporters of Embrace Oregon
The company supports Embrace Oregon, which is a local organization that attempts to connect more caring members of the community with children and families who are vulnerable.
This is done in conjunction with the Department of Human Services. Helping every child flourish is their goal. They also host local non-profit organizations without charging a rental fee.
I think if I were closer to Portland, I believe that Blend Coffee would be one of my favorite places to work. The workspace looks comfortable, and it has been designed so that there are enough electrical outlets.
There is a varied selection of food, and the Honey Badger specialty coffee is so highly recommended. It’s a place with a genuine personality and is locally grounded.
