Hey Mark,

Thanks for reprinting that article.  It's good to read something that was printed before I knew what fresh cup was.  Looking forward to more.

Great article and fairly true...

I learned all about Seattle coffee culture by frequent visits to the Last Exit while attending the University of Washington.  

I had one espresso there and about died.  

However, they made THE ABSOLUTE BEST iced mochas I've ever had...and the people watching there was amazing!  I distinctly remember one hippy guy that frequented the place that looked like Moses or John the Baptist.

Like Schoemer, I too avoided the restroom (dungeon) like the plague!

But I occasionally think about how great it would be to enjoy another one of those iced mochas!
