End of an Era

Thursday, December 21, 2006

Coffee People is closing down all locations in early January, and those great little Motor Mochas will become drive-through Starbucks. I’ve used the one on Powell the most, and it will depress my little heart to see STARBUCKS there now. Coffee People has been a big part of my life since coming to Portland 12 years ago, and it was coffee coolers & velvet hammers with cups full of gummy bears that helped get me through many classes. My Dad once opened my checkbook in those days to find it full of 2-3 dollar carbon copies of checks all written to Coffee People. It is truly an end to an era. Welcome to the era of corporate uniformity. Portland just isn't going to be the same without Coffee People!
