I enjoyed that. Thanks for the tip. Which led to tips to at at least 5 more spots for me to visit in Portland.

Quite welcome. Here's another article with some more PNW gems: Cool Cafes on the Road Between Portland and Seattle

Good recommendations for those of us driving the I-5. I've enjoyed Olympia, Compass, and Relevant.

Fun and informative article. I spent a week in Seattle last month and enjoyed the coffee scene. We're indebted to those "pioneers". Thanks for sharing!
