Wonderful new coffee shop/ Portland

Just wanted to let everyone know about "Coffea" on SE Holgate and 30th (next to Yoko's sushi). It's coffee is great (stumptown!) and the atmosphere unlike any cafe in PDX. It's like an Aalto Lounge type space - mid-century to modern furniture/art etc with a wide array of stylin' magazines to read while you sip (Wallpaper and the like). The prices are a bit cheaper than the usual (16 oz. mocha is 2.80, not the typical 3.00 or 3.25) too.....as if I need to sell you on this any more, the owner is hoping to add a dessert bar soon (we NEED more dessert cafes in Portland. Enough of this Papa Haydan crap!!) and is talking to the OLCC about a beer/wine license. Support local business and try this place out!!
I didn't think that there were any commercial establishments at 30th and Holgate and, indeed, I drove there, and back and forth, and Coffeea is not there. According to Citysearch, Yoko's is on GLADSTONE (next semi-major street north of Holgate), so presumably Rachel had a slip of the digit when typing the address (though I haven't actually gone to Gladstone yet to test this hypothesis).
