Backporch

A friend and I visited Backporch Coffee today. They are located across the street from Newport Ave Market, in the former Royal Blend shop.

It's a very pleasant shop - good colors and lighting, with large windows so you can just sit and watch the world go by. The employees (owners?) were very friendly. I didn't check to see if they offer wifi - but there were a couple of people there working on laptops so it might be available.

They don't serve "regular" brewed coffee, so I had a cup of the French Press. I generally like my coffee dark and strong. You know - the kind they might as well serve with a knife and fork. This coffee was lighter, but was almost like a wine. The full flavor doesn't hit you for a few seconds, and then WOW! It was excellent coffee, and I may go back to purchase some of their beans for home.

I would highly recommend stopping in and giving them a try if you are in their neck of the woods!

I didn't know that was still a coffee place. I was so sad when they closed Royal Blend, which had been there forever & which I used to go to before we ever moved here. I mean, when we used to vist from Ptld. I'll have to check it out. It's about a 10 minute walk from my house, maybe a bit less.
