Yep, I'd also read 'God in a cup' (see previous review) so I knew about Stumptown and the whole US pourover/cupping scene. I thought the cafe wasn't bad, but it took me a few attempts before they understood that I wanted a coffee in between the 30ml of an espresso and the 400ml of their Americano. What they came up with was okay, but far from my perfect brew. The flavour was interesting (the blend was Sumatran/Brazilian/West African, I believe) but it seemed a bit underextracted, as if they hadn't packed it tight enough - I'd seen other coffees go out that looked better. So it leaves me wondering about the consistency of their work.
