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.

Latte and lamb organs, please

While in Scotland, we took the ferry from Mallaig to the Isle of Skye and at the ferry dock I spotted this espresso stand. You know you're in Scotland when the espresso stands serve haggis.

About haggis: it is true that it is made from sheep or lamb offal, but honestly, it's not bad. As a matter of fact, I rather liked it. It reminded me of something I used to eat frequently while growing up in Cincinnati, called goetta. They are both a combination of meat, pin oats, and seasoning, and served in a very similar way. If you aren't familiar with goetta, you are not alone. It is consumed practically nowhere but Cincinnati.
