What is the best thing to bring home from Portland?

Portland’s green and handmade sensibilities offer plenty of souvenir options, but Forbes Travel Guide’s editors recommend one thing to make sure to bring home — coffee. The city’s coffee culture rivals any in the country, and the famous Stumptown Coffee Roasters is one of the best places to get your beans. Bring home a bag from the local roaster — selling direct trade varieties from Africa, Indonesia and Latin America roasted nearby in cast-iron German Probat machines — which has locations all over the city. The beans are easy to pack in your carry-on luggage (a plus that puts them above the city’s famous microbrews). Other ideas? Bring home a book from the famous Powell’s City of Books or jewelry from the Portland Saturday Market.
