We proudly serve a unique coffee blend, specifically created for Bitter Rose Coffee Bar. In Collaboration with Lawrence Casperson, owner of the longtime staple of Los Angeles: Kings Road Café, who has been roasting and serving a single, French roast cup of coffee and espresso for over 30 years. Owners of Bitter Rose Coffee Bar: Natalie Connacher and Michael McClure (who both worked for Lawrence at Kings Road). set out on a mission, to create and offer the best dark roast coffee that can be found in Portland.
