The crew at insomnia coffee has been working hard all summer and now that fall is here things have really been picking up. Coffee is just so much better when it’s cold and crisp outside. If you haven’t stopped by the shop be sure to and order something that will make your fall day a better day.

Wow! It seems big news always comes in threes around here:
-The new Harry Potter book is out!
-Ikea is opening in Portland this week!!
-Tyler is getting MARRIED!!! That tops everything!
So Insomnia Coffee Company is giving him a few hours off, resulting in shorter hours this Friday and Saturday. No music this week, either, except at the wedding.
There are three things that last: faith, hope and love, and the greatest of these is love.

Could it be that Insomnia Coffee Company is becoming a meetup place for New Beetle owners? If word gets out, it could be very interesting.
When Amy was a little girl, she liked to have collections (got that from her mom). As soon as she had two of something, it was considered a collection.

...what else would you expect? This is Oregon, after all. Lots of rain in Hillsboro today, and more forecast for tomorrow. Here's a customer who can still get a drink even if the water gets too high in the drive through lane.
