It is very hard, if not impossible, to live in the Pacific Northwest, specifically the Puget Sound region, and not become seduced by, and ultimately—become part of, the pervasive coffee culture that thrives in this part of the country—come rain or shine. This book represents my journey into the realm of coffee establishments around the Sound. It is filled with my own paintings and photographs along with impressions of what I observed taking place in various coffee spots around the region. [M.G.]
