Got Coffee? Echoes Of My Neighbourhood #13

Seattle is a huge coffee mecca, with its biggest coffee roasters being Starbucks, Tully’s, and Seattle’s Best.  It is said that there are 35 coffeehouses per 100,000 people.  There are 4 drive-thru coffee stands no more than 3 miles from my house.  Here are 3 of them.  This sensation is lost on me as I don’t drink coffee.

Even the bling for Rock ‘n’ Roll Seattle in 2014 was a coffee cup.

(yeah, shameless plug, I know, :D)

I am joining Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha from A Cooking Pot and Twisted Tales for her series, “Echoes of My Neighbourhood,” where she challenges us all to share a photo of bits and pieces of wherever you are at any point in time.

Are drive-thru coffee stands the norm where you live, or is this just a Seattle thing?

    Drive-thru coffee – everywhere but here, it seems. Where I live, we have coffee shops all over the place, but none have drive-thrus. I find that a touch frustrating because if I cross the bridge, drive-thru coffee every few miles and probably more. Ah, well. I have become accustomed to my San Francisco peninsula way of life… 🙂 It is probably good I don’t have too many coffee options near me – I love the stuff. 🙂

      Oh, that’s funny how they’re everywhere else around you, just not where you want them to be! Yeah, it can get expensive when it’s so easily accessible, so I’m kind of glad I don’t partake!! 😀

    WHAT!!!! You don’t drink coffee?!?!?!!!?!?! Um, you will never become a WA native. This is a dead give away! I like the drive thru coffee shop. In Cottonwood AZ we had one and no one went so it closed. There is a Starbucks in the Safeway. Prescott and Flagstaff had lots of little coffee shops but not very drive thru ones. And now in WA I am spoiled. It would be hard to move somewhere without every 3 miles.

      You’re right, lol! I will never become a WA native, but neither will you, hahaha! We are Arizonians! 😀 We never had the drive-thru thingies in Arizona which is why this was a really different concept when we moved up here in 2006. Mind you, some of these little stands do serve great chocolate milk and hot chocolate, so I’m happy with that! 😀

    Since I don’t drink coffee either, I really never notice whether or not there are drive through coffee places here (hard to miss in WA!). I think Starbucks had a drivethrough in Austin; up here Dunkin Donuts is all the rage (a NY thing) and they have drive throughs.

    Love coffee! I’d live nicely in Seattle. But San Diego has quite a few Starbucks to keep me happy. There are drive-thru Starbucks here…one is near my work. It’s quite convenient but the line is always long. I refuse to wait in a long line for coffee. Seems like addicts do that. It’s good you don’t drink coffee. Besides, exercise is way better to get your blood pumping. 🙂

    Im not a coffee drinker either, but we have lots of little caravan coffee places that popped up after the earthquakes. There alsp several cars with built in coffee makers that travel around businesses selling coffee to the workers. I think the only drive thru coffee is McDonald’s though!

    Drive through coffee???? Really??? I think you have a bit more space than us over there 😉 I’d like a cycle-through coffee stand please. Hmmmm… now there’s an idea…. 😉

      Yeah, coffee drinking is a big past-time here, :D. I’m not actually sure what those plants are… I even asked 3 other people and they weren’t sure either, hehe! But they have to be some kind of ground cover which is what makes them appear so lush, 🙂

      I am a tea drinker! I think I never got into coffee because when I was like in the 3rd grade, I announced to the whole family that I wanted to start drinking coffee, so my parents, being huge coffee drinkers, humored me. I got served coffee with dinner and it was disgusting, from what I can remember! So ended the coffee drinking forever, haha! But I’ve always drank tea… being from Arizona, iced tea was sometimes more thirst quenching than water, but I do wake up with hot black tea. 🙂 There ya go… my whole life history on it, hehe!! 😀

        So cute–did they give you straight-up black coffee? So funny. I’ve tried to drink tea, especially after having the babies and trying to cut out the caffeine. But I always go back to coffee. 🙂

    Yes, the coffee they served me was straight black… and strong, :D. It sounds like coffee is your first love, so I totally get why you don’t switch to tea. James loves coffee, but will have a cup of tea in the afternoon when he needs a little pick-me-up, 😀
