Topic: coffeeshop recommendations (8 msgs / 320 lines)
1) From: Kris Bhatti
I'll be driving my daughter back to Seattle from Orange County a few days after Christmas.  I already know where to stop in Vancouver, but I thought I'd check here and see if anyone else knows of some good shops along the 5 freeway.  When I take a road trip, I usually look for "historic downtown" signs along the interstate and I've found some great little shops in those areas.  I've only driven the SoCal-Seattle route a few times though and the best I could do was Dutch Brothers drive-thru stands.  I'm really looking forward to stopping in at miKe's place - I know that will become a must-do on all trips through Vancouver in the future.  My daughter is a barista at a great little independent shop in Seattle so I know she'll enjoy the stop too.
Thanks,
Kris

I don't know any stops to recommend off hand. But I've found driving
north on US99 to be a much more interesting drive than going up I5.
Only a little further (~20 minutes) but more scenic.

Former US Barista Champion Phuong Tran's Lava Java is just north of
Vancouver in a strip mall right off the Ridgefield exit. Though chances of
catching Phuong there are slimmer than catching me at my Kafe between
roasting and shopping for foods/supplies etc.! As far as I know Phuong is
still using Stumptown Hairbender though she does a bunch of work for Zoka.
She may have switched, haven't been in her shop in a number of months.
FWIW Deanne (one of my employees) started her Journey at Lava Java. She has
a new cool tatoo on her right uppper arm just finished last week, full color
coffee branch in bloom and cherry.
Depending on your time in the Portland/Vancouver area Billy's shop Albina
Press in Portland also highly recommended. (also known to be pulling
Hairbender.)

Wow - too many choices in a small area!  Since I "know" you and your shop from this list, that's where I'll be stopping in Vancouver.  If you aren't there, I'll leave a note.  Thanks for the info on the other shops though - I'll file that away in case I come through at a time when you aren't open.

Hey Kris-
I don't know the area, but you might want to try www.espressomap.com.
Good luck, and have a safe trip.

I didn't realize that Martin still had a retail place since *$ bought out all the Diedrich's coffee shops.  I'll make sure to stop in this shop as it's practically next door to me.

It's his return to the retail scene, and is -apparently- a great place to go...
I have yet to actually land there - schedules too tight every time I
fly to OC....
