Don’t be alarmed if you happen to be driving by when the Portland Brew sign at Murphy Road comes tumbling down – The coffee shop has indeed departed from the Portland Brew fold, but the caffeine isn’t going anywhere. New owners Heath Henley and Keith Steunebrink, both former employees of Portland Brew, have spiffed the place up with a new coat of paint, some shiny new lights, a modified seating arrangement and interior flow, and the new sign announcing the arrival of Dose Coffee & Tea will be installed this week.
In addition to a fresh face-scrubbing and the name change, the new/old coffee shop will keep offerings that Portland Brew fans have grown to love, and improve on the concept with a few tricks of their own. Look for a new lunch menu coming this month, and in the meantime, a bounty of fresh baked goods are pouring forth from co-tenant Marmellata Bakery. Dose will also begin roasting their own coffee at MST Coffee Roasters in the near future, and will have a variety of coffees from local, regional, national and potentially international roasters available on the shelves for purchase. Henley compares their plans for coffee offerings to that of a wine shop, but on a smaller scale.
Dose Coffee & Tea will initially retain Portland Brew’s hours of 7am-7pm Monday through Saturday, with plans to open on Sunday after renovations are completed in mid-to-late November. Follow the transformation on Facebook, or drop by and give Dose a shot for yourself.
