Located across the street from the Silver Cloud Inn (look not for Kobos, but "Groundwork"), I received the hottest spicy Mexican mocha. It was wonderful! We bought two pounds of certified organic beans with the purchase going to support female organic coffee farmers. Excited to try the decaf espresso blend, Black Magic.

I love to stop in this place for a quality coffee and to look thru their close out kitchen items. We've picked up some nice bowls, glasses, dish towels and even a deep dish pizza pan at bargain prices. It's hit or miss, you don't know what you'll find.

I love Kobos. I've been going since the 70's when it was in John's landing. The black & white is my favorite, my partner likes the pioneer blend. It's just been sold so I don't know what that means for the future, but if they keep the same roast I can assure you that the coffe is a good Portland... More

Got a Latte and a Cappuccino. Very nice! Also bought a gluten free biscotti, which were delicious! Very convenient to our hotel (sorry great hotel, but we don't drink hotel coffee, anywhere!).

Kobos was walking distance from the unit we rented and wanted a great cup of coffee. Unfortunately Kobos didn't fit the bill. I ordered a nonfat latte and hot chocolate. The coffee needed an extra shot to compare to most lattes I'm used to. I did like browsing the kitchen appliances and supplies while waiting for my coffee.

Kobos is what coffee should taste like. It doesn't douse your drink with an overload of sugar like other places. They always have a special going on and they have a great selection of loose tea. I love walking around the shop looking at the items they have to purchase and the people who work here are awesome!

The cafe au lait was delicious as were the scones. There is a variety of kitchen ware especially for tea and coffee. I got a pointed tea strainer...I never saw one before. The shop has many useful and novel items. There is also a front patio.
