Tandem Cafe & Roastery

Tandem Cafe & Roastery
742 Congress St.
Portland, ME

The special thing about Tandem is that the cafe and roastery are all under one roof. The whole show happens here. The roasting space is open and transparent. As a customer, you can witness the sample roasting and cupping of new coffees; see the pallets of that coffee arrive weeks later; and finally drink that coffee yourself in the cafe. That which you cannot see – all that happens at origin until the coffee reaches the roastery – the folks at Tandem will happily discuss with you in the café or at one of their weekly public cuppings. Enjoy a simple, traditional menu of seasonal espresso and drip coffees, tea & pastries, and retail bags of coffee to enjoy at home. The space was designed with the intent of making it feel like you are stepping into a home, a place where strangers quickly become friends.
