Hello! I’m Emily McIntyre, a travel / beverages writer, and I’m thrilled to meet you.

A recent project for me is my new column for Eater PDX, “Unfiltered”. A strong mix of extended interviews and photoessays, this series of articles will explore the coffee culture in my home city of Portland, Oregon, with what is becoming my characteristic style: honest, stylish writing that honors passion and creativity.

The first installment features CJ Speelman of Tanager Coffee, “a graceful bear of a man with a crisp mop of caramel-colored hair hiding a rough-hewn face”, and a talented roaster worth meeting.
