I have a little obsession with coffee shops because I like to see how these compact spaces create a lively atmosphere in a small area. The Branch studio is fairly compact, as well and I’m always getting fresh ideas when I visit new ones.
One of the best coffee shops I’ve been to recently is Presso in Portland. I’ll admit that I was first lured in by their wall of Ellie Cashman Dark Floral wallpaper (I’ve been wanting to see a sample in person for ages!) but the service and coffee were awesome, too.
Beyond that, the space was super welcoming and lively. Every table was full of people chatting and it had an immediate feeling of community. I love, love, love this cozy space. It immediately feels like home.
