That’s 2 podcast and they’re both with Seattle guys! What’s up with that? Should have asked them where their favorite coffee spot is 🙂

2 Dan McComb

Lighthouse Coffee in Seattle is the place for true coffee lovers. There’s no wireless, no franchise, just unbelievable coffee that people will drive all the way across town for. Really, it’s amazing.
