I'll be perfectly honest. The first place I stopped when I got to XOXO wasn't the artist's alley, with local goods made by artisans. Nor did I find a food cart outside to get a pre-conference snack. Nope, the first place I stopped was the Stumptown coffee kiosk for a cappucino and an iced. If you didn't know, Stumptown is one of the roasters responsible for the resurgence of specialty coffee over the last decade. They make a mean iced coffee, too.
