a few weekends back we took the long drive up to Portland ME with a couple of friends. I had heard about tandem coffee on the More & Co blog. (they did tandem’s remarkable branding) When we got to Portland we stopped into Seawall and the guys also recommended Tandem, so we knew it was a must.
It did not disappoint! Tandem is located in the East Bayside area of town. Their space is beautiful, i was immediately struck by the Patrick Townsend Orbit chandelier and crisp wood bars. The mood in the shop is super relaxed, like you’ve just popped over to your friend’s house to listen to records and drink coffee. the owners are ex blue bottle folks so they know their stuff for sure. I ordered a malt iced coffee, mostly because I’ve never had one. It was amazing! I cannot wait to go back. and when we do I’m buying beans, how i forgot to grab a bag is beyond me…guess i was really that relaxed there.
