Jitters: Coffee time in Sequim

The last coffee outpost on Sequim Avenue, at Old Olympic Highway, is the Cracked Bean. After you leave this spot and continue north you’re on your own. Maybe you ought to fill up your thermos if you don’t think you can hold out until you get back into town. Six coffee spots and still counting.

“It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity. I bet this kind of thing does not happen to heroin addicts. I bet that when serious heroin addicts go to purchase their heroin, they do not tolerate waiting in line while some dilettante in front of them orders a hazelnut smack-a-cino with cinnamon sprinkles.”  — Dave Barry

Go juice: Coffee time in Sequim

If you miss the first Sequim exit off Highway 101, take the next one for Central Sequim and drive north on Sequim Avenue. Just about the first thing you’ll see as you come off the highway, on the west side of the street, is Red Dog Coffee. This is the third coffee spot and you’ve barely set foot in town.

“Way too much coffee. But if it weren’t for coffee, I’d have no identifiable personality whatsoever.”  — David Letterman

Java: Coffee time in Sequim

Living in the Pacific Northwest means never having to worry where to get your next cup of coffee. I’ve been struck by how many coffee shops and kiosks we have for a small town. So join me in the coming days to tour Sequim’s local coffee spots. Starting at the east end of town here’s the first one on Washington Street, Adagio Bean and Leaf.
