First contribution! My favorite friend, Alix, from Portland (also referenced in coffee cup #7), taken with her iPhone.
“This is from a place called The People’s Coffee, or something to that effect. The place was so large, and had so many employees cranking out such beautiful cups to such a small clientele, it made me wonder how they stayed in business. They may not be.”
My memories of Portland (pre-Alix) include great coffee at Coffee People, the anti-Starbucks of the day. It looks like they are now an online retailer with only one cafe at PDX. And…(from a comment on Yelp), it looks like they were purchased by a corporate coffee company, who was then purchased by…(you know the answer to this one)…Starbucks.
