Driven to Espresso: Drive-through Coffee Stands in the Northwest

If you think coffee culture is cool, you have come to the right place. I have loads of information and opinions to share about espresso in the Pacific Northwest, especially the drive-through phenomenon.

Pre-Cowgirls sexpresso and all that

This is a rather mundane photo (which is one reason it doesn't appear in Driven to Espresso) of a mundane little stand in Monroe. It even had a mundane name: Northwest Coffee Company.

Today it is painted white with black blobby spots, resembling a cow, more or less. It is now called Cowgirls Espresso. The paint job is meant to resemble cows, not girls. I'm pretty sure of that.

Anyway, if that weren't a turnaround enough, the baristas wear sexy outfits. As a matter of fact, one of the Cowgirls themselves appears in the book, and also one of the Cowgirls stands, although not this particular one. The one in the book is in Auburn and is shaped like a coffee pot. The stand, not the barista, that is. No, she doesn't look anything like a coffee pot at all.
