It’s pretty much a given that, when traveling to a new city, we will seek out at least ONE good coffee shop. Finding a local coffee shop, to me, is a bit like feeling the pulse of the city. And thanks to our friend Jason at Thunderkiss Coffee, we got a good taste of Dayton when he directed us to Press in the Oregon District.
Press is a small shop decorated in natural wood, with a long counter, a handful of tables up front and more piled into the back.
They serve the standard roster of pour overs, espresso, cold brew, and more.
We had a lovely time interacting with the baristas. They were welcoming and up for answering questions. We ordered an espresso and a pour over of the Kenya Karatina. Both excellent.
I told the barista that even though it was sacrilege, I wanted the espresso to go. “Well, as long as you know,” she joked.
Press was a perfect stop after breakfast at Butter Cafe and on our way to the Air Force Museum. I look forward to stopping there the next time we’re in Dayton!
