We took a 4700 mile roadtrip from KC to Seattle and back this summer. We were very pleasantly surprised to find little independently owned drive-thru espresso places in Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and of course, Washington. The caffeine we had at all of them was quite good. Even in tiny little towns, there would be at least one espresso place, right off the interstate. You can imagine how happy were were!
We don’t even own an automatic coffee maker anymore. We just use our French press. Our daughter used to roast beans at one of her jobs, she thinks we should try it.
