“Mathew is an artist”

I am not going to say there is coffee perfection in McMinnville, but if there is, you can find it right here. I am a coffee snob and Mathew's artisinal coffee delivers to my snobbery.

Pleased to find this lively shop in the heart of industrial McMinnville! Found the perfect 'for here' vanilla latte in a generous mug and saucer.

The atmosphere here was cozy and the decor was that of the many craft breweries of Portland where I feel so at home. The midweek local crowd proves the hype is well deserved.

Highly recommended alternative to the mainstream Starbucks that are sprinkled throughout the Linfield campus area.

Will likely return to try the brewery in the adjoining building that doesn't open until 11:30.

Cool building, friendly staff, and great coffee. Best way to start the day. Nice outdoor space, close to great food and a brewery. Industrial, modern decor.

We've been in the Portland area for the past 2 months visiting all the top coffee roasters from Coava to Ristretto to Noble. Flag & Wire was an unexpected find welcoming us to McMinnville.

Pros: friendly, knowledgeable baristas, relaxed atmosphere, music wasn't too loud, excellent prices, easy parking

Unfortunately, most of the coffees aren't our preferred profile so very limited in choice. We had hoped to try the Benevolence but it wasn't on the schedule. Thankfully, the barista was willing to make it up for us using the aeropress (it's rare to find cafes that can/will do this); made our day! It was excellent - great depth of flavour, well-balanced without a trace of bitterness.

Not the most attractive cafe we've been in, or the most comfortable, but it's fine. Could have been a bit cleaner (crumbs all over the bar where we sat) but I'm sure they would have eventually wiped it down.

Flag and Wire roasts their own beans. They make the best coffee in McMinnville. The baristas are great. Ask Matthew to make a foam design on your latte. The nitro cold brew is always a great choice.
