It's mostly show (although they would have you think they are scientists) and if you don't mind paying and waiting for that, than go get it. I just wanted a black coffee with good taste...to expensive for my preference.

Great coffee. Friendly staff. Takes a little longer to get your coffee than some other places but the quality is worth the wait. We had a mocha and a latte. Both were terrific.

Portola has a reputation for fine coffees and does not disappoint. However, aside from the unique offerings in coffee brewing style, the quality is not so different from other good quality, smaller coffee shops. Recommended, but don't expect a revelation, just good coffee.

My friends and I go get coffee practically every Friday. It's become our ritual, and I am so glad one of our friends discovered this place and brought all of us. I am not much of a coffee drinker, so you please take my review...More

Hipster coffee bar with multiple locations in Orange County. I wouldn't normally wait, but they do have a way with coffee. We also buy their Alchemistic coffee beans.

The Portola Coffee Lab is a coffee experience unlike anything else in Southern California.

Our goal is to roast and prepare coffee in a way that lets the coffee speak for itself. So that you can taste all of the nuances that our carefully sourced coffee beans have to offer. We never dark roast anything, but rather roast coffee to (in our opinions) its best flavor potential. And we give you a chance to experience these flavors in ways that cannot be found anywhere else.
