OK, yes, PNW has some of the greatest coffee roasters and purveyors in the world. And that said, I regularly get served cappuccinos that look like cafe au lait, the burnt foam off the top of the pitcher, overextracted bitter brew, shots with no crema, shots in 12oz paper cups or 8 oz cold ceramic ones.

The thing that puzzles me is why the crap places have lines and customers. This makes coffee the low hanging fruit of the restaurant world.
