I love living in Portland with all its eccentricities that the show Portlandia depicts so perfectly. But sometimes, I feel the State of Oregon goes a bit too far. For example, on my way to take the kiddies to school, I saw something particularly strange that I later discussed with Amanda. There was a Craigslist poster of a local man drinking a cup of coffee. Seems innocent enough, right? Until you read that the man in the photo – a self-described “casual home roaster and coffee geek” – has started making Kopi Luwak coffee beans (consumed and then expelled) for $30 a pound!
It might be all in fashion and all, and even actually be a delicious cup of coffee but I personally think that this is taking the eccentricities of Portlanders a little bit too far. Still, feel free to disagree with me, as clearly a lot of my neighbors are doing!
