This month, our highlight for Irvine’s best coffee shop is falling on… Portola Coffee Roasters!  Located inside the Union Market at The District in Tustin, you can find an industrial décor inside. There’s also a great outside patio area which is phenomenal for people watching.

Portola comes with a coterie of specialty coffee drinks that will make your day. And if that ain’t enough, they serve up a variety of pastries from Cake Monkey Bakery as well as delicious macaroons from Kayla’s Cakes. We sampled a few and, wow! It’s like a sugar explosion inside your mouth!
Their backstory is as compelling as their coffee. The owner (or is that RoastMaster?) Jeff Dugan traveled to Africa, South America and Central America in search of that perfect cup of coffee. Ultimately, Jeff brought back a variety of perfect cups that he roasts and brews to perfection here in Irvine. He still travels to these remote and exotic places as his search for that next perfect cup continues!

May the 4th be with you…
