It's barely detectable that Spring has arrived here in the Northwest if you watch our weather. So every afternoon between 2:30 and 5:30 you will find many Seattle locals headed for their ample dose of sunshine in a cup. It may be Starbucks, Tully's, Cafe Ladro, or Vivace Roasteria it matters not which brand you choose. It's simply the only warmth and comfort a person can find this time of year to replace the sunshine.
My wife has a friend that recently relocated to Seattle from California. It did not take her long to recognize this obvious Northwest phenomenon of sun replacement with a hot cup-a-joe in the late afternoon. I myself am as guilty as the milkman when it comes to grabbing my daily cup of sunshine. I'll have a grande, soy latte for here please.
