I could offer some tips!
I visited the new SE location of the Portland Juice Press
last week, they have an impressive selection of juice blends! I also love the Kure Juice Bar.
I carry many different styles of juicers, the best one for you depends on the types of foods you will be juicing.
The best juicer that will juice all types of foods, including leafy greens and
wheatgrass, is the single auger slow juicer.
I prefer the Omega or Hurom brands.
These juicers spin at 80 revolutions per minute (RPM), which do not oxidize or heat the juice.
The centrifical style juicers spin at 14,000 RPMs. They are faster but create a lower quality juice.
I recommend the Omega juicers, model 8004, 8006, and VRT350. I also love the Hurom juicer, which is the same as the Omega VRT.
I prefer the Hurom over the VRT because it has a better appearance, and is $21 less expensive.
I have these juicers listed on my site at
