"A Northwest favorite! Chetzemoka (formerly Monorail) is a blend of Vienna and Italian-roasted coffees that brews up a flavorful and smoky cup. It also makes award-winning espresso!"
### coffee ###
It’s been more than 12 years since I spent any time at Monorail. But I like coffee and I really like this coffee and the fact that they tack on (formerly Monorail) to the name Chetzemoka makes me like it even more as I drink it for breakfast every morning.
Monorail was firmly planted on my coffee-beer continuum. Perhaps I should say my continuum revolved around Monorail. It was hard to select just a few photos here because I spent a lot of time there loitering with a camera in one hand and a cup of coffee or a can of beer in the other.
One day Chuck, the owner back then, asked me to help him drag a municipal garbage can from around the corner, closer to his spot, to help rein in the empty cans collecting with the coffee cups of messengers continuuming. I can say with confidence that those were my two Milwaukees Best cans in the coffee-beer carousel above.
Here and now, these days (what day is it?) I’m schlepping things around the 98195 on an electric assist bathtub. Every month or so, the Bioengineers and Genome Scientists get a rather large shipment of Mukilteo. The smell of this delivery finally motivated me to connect the dots and look into getting my hands on my very own (formerly Monorail) coffee
