Hey all, I will be in Seattle from the afternoon of December 7th until the morning of the 10th. I have a few things to do during the mornings but outside of that, I would love to connect and drink shots and eat food with awesome Seattle coffee peeps. I am not familiar with Seattle but I would love it if someone could show me the spots if they have time. Let's Possify!

I had a funny idea to make t shirts that say snarky barista coffee stuff on them (i.e. "Rock Out With Your Macch Out!"). I am selling them. I think they are fun but I don't know that anyone else will. I am going to continue to try to spread the spro-based snark about the land so I will post new designs for shirts and stuff as they are completed. Yay! This is fun! BTW the macchiato I used for the logo was a delicious macch from Gimme!
