The list of contestants is growing !!


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.

“eclectic COFFEE Spots in Puget Sound” 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. As an artist, my goal in creating this book was to celebrate the visual and eclectic nature of a particular Puget Sound coffee spot, perhaps its ambiance, its architectural character, the motif, furnishings, or curb appeal, whatever its distinguishing personality might be. Without a doubt, each coffee establishment in the Puget Sound region offers its own distinctive and savory environment.  Hopefully, your own journey will be filled with discovery and delightful taste sensations. Enjoy !
