Before brothers Nick and Sam Purvis teamed up to bring Portland their Good-branded roasted coffees and cafes, they were both competitive baristas competing in regional and national drink-making championships. (In 2011, Sam won the regionals in these parts; Nick placed in the top five nationally in 2013.)
But since 2014, the brothers have been opening Good cafes featuring their own roasts, first on Division and then on SE 12th.
On June 16th, they opened their third cafe at 2175 NW Raleigh in the Slabtown District where they provide workers and tenants in a rapidly expanding neighborhood with espresso drinks, teas, and Bakeshop pastries, as well as more experimental seasonal coffee drinks like blackberry-walnut lattes and salted honey cortados.
As you can see by the accompanying photo, the Brothers Purvis have opted to closely hew to the clean Scandinavian design, including white marble countertops and subway tiles, with bursts of color from the many plants strategically placed around the space.
After a small soft opening, Good Coffee is now officially open daily, from 7 am to 7 pm.
