    CaffeiNation's Coffee Road Trip Comes to PDX

    Do you think you drink a lot of coffee? You might not think so after watching the video below. Brandon Davenport, a barista at the Pancake Epidemic in Los Angeles (serving Stumptown Coffee), and his video-maker, Jesse Meeker, record their road trip around the West, hitting a wide variety coffee stops along the way. The video below is a recap of the duo's Portland stop, the second city on the tour. You might recognize a few of the names and faces (Liam Kenna, who manages Stumptown's Annex, has an especially prominent role).

    In total, there are seven videos in the series, covering  San Francisco, Seattle, Spokane, Boulder, Cheyenne, and other cities. The rest of them can be found at CaffeiNation's YouTube page.

By free-flowing, I mean that drivers there tend to follow the traffic laws, unless they decide the rules aren’t convenient. If you could stand at an intersection and watch traffic for a while, you would see that red lights usually mean stop, cars usually stay in their lanes and bikes and motorcycles usually go in the same direction as the rest of the traffic. However, you would also see that at certain times during the day, many of the rules are thrown out the window and chaos reigns. Check out the video to see what I mean.
