New Starbucks open today

Posted by Meghan Walker on April 9th, 2012

Today was the first day of business at the new location for Starbucks on NW Market St. The coffee house is in the space formally occupied briefly by 5 Corners Market Bar & Kitchen. The space previously housed Lombardi’s for 23 years.

The new location is on the corner of 22nd Ave NW and NW Market St, just one door east of their previous location.

At just before 9 a.m., the new store was already beginning to fill up with customers eager for a glance at the new location. With its tall ceilings, ample seating, and spacious layout, it’s a far cry from their former store next door.

Store manager Jen Neill says the location is unique because it has a Clover coffee machine. According to Neill, there are less than 300 of the machines in Starbucks around the country. The Clover, which is a Ballard-made coffee maker, is a combination of a French press and a vacuum press. It costs a little bit more than regular drip coffee, but allows baristas to regulate the water temperature, coffee grind, coffee-to-water ratio and brew time.

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into
    any internet browser compatibility issues? A couple of
    my blog audience have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.
    Do you have any suggestions to help fix this

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both educative and engaging,
    and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.

    Now i’m very happy I came across this during my search for
    something regarding this.

    Si no recuerdo mal, durante la década de 1970 hubo un exceso de pilotos cualificados porque muchos pilotos militares se jubilan o que se vacíe lo contrario de la Fuerza Aérea y la Armada. ¿Es posible que la Guerra del Golfo traerá una gran cantidad de pilotos calificados para la parte civil?

    Im curious about how much it costs to start websites such as Facebook or Twitter. I have been thinking about starting a website for a while now, but i feel as though the initial prices that website design firms give you are for a very low tech and sparsely populated website..

    I have asked several questions, and many of the replies suggest that I consider FIREFOX. I’m not sure what it is – probably a browser. Is it similar to Netscape and Internet Explorer? What are its good features and its bad features?.

    Hi All,. . I am creating a website for overseas students who are in Australia and those who are thinking of applying a student visa to Australia. (fyi, website will be in the local language).. . I have found a PDF file on the Australian Embassy website advising how to apply those main visas and application procedure, etc. I think this info is very useful to for many people and I want to make this info available on my website. Copyright is the only concerned at the moment.. . If I just copy the whole article “without” making any amendments, including make sure to reference all details where it from etc plus the link to the Australian embassy website. . . Would this be illegal?. . Many thanks..
