Slow Bomb Coffee is the cutest coffee drive-through I have ever encountered. This kiosk located off of Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway in Portland has treats waiting for you! The brightly painted red building is eye-catching and is the friendliest place in town.

I first noticed this little gem looking around on Yelp. Many customers say that they love the seasonal offerings here and all that the owner does for the community.

It is beautiful that this coffee kiosk has a new outdoor patio with picnic table seating! Even though it is a drive-through, you can enjoy your coffee and treats outdoors if you like.

I met the lovely owner, Cheyenne, while getting my coffee and cookie on a sunny day last week.

She recommended the Bees Knees, which is an iced latte with honey and lavender. It was the perfect treat on a hot day! Such great flavor without being too sweet.

I also picked up a delicious gluten-free peanut butter cookie to share with my son and husband. We all agreed it was a fantastic cookie.

I cannot wait to visit here again. I am glad that I got a punchcard so that I can earn a free coffee here soon. Next time, I will text my order ahead, order a breakfast sandwich, a smoothie, and a local pastry. I'll be sure to go early before they run out. I am a big fan of places that have rotating specials and something new to try all the time.

Their coffee is so delicious because it is certified organic coffee. They source their coffee from Cafe Equitas: Shade Grown Coffee. They even have their own Slow Bomb Blend. You can pick up a bag of these coffee beans from this shop. They also use organic matcha powder in their matcha lattes and blended drinks. I love that they use high-quality ingredients in all of their drinks.

Text ahead to order your coffee drinks and breakfast sandwiches, and they will have them ready for you. They even offer gluten-free bagels, which are a rare find in coffee shops.

The owner loves supporting local, woman-owned businesses. Her shop carries a wide variety of fresh, local pastries. On her Facebook page, I saw the photos of these delicious baked goods from Bees Custom Cakes.

I love how inclusive this shop is with its offerings. They have a wide variety of drinks, alternative kinds of milk, and more.

Their signature drinks are their Strawberry Bomber and White Cherry Bomb. You may try these hot, iced, or blended.

If you are in the mood for something different, they also have fresh fruit smoothies, matcha lattes, red bull drinks, chai, Italian sodas, iced tea, and even white coffee.

If you fall in love with the shop as I have, you can pick up a hoodie, or sweatshirt to show your support. They come in many colors!
