We, the caffeinated brethren of Yakima love our coffee! There can be no dispute about that. There certainly isn't a shortage of espresso stands, coffee houses, smoothie shops or beverage options around here.

So, what would cause a seemingly endless stream of thirsty motorists to go round in circles and wait in line for nearly an hour before puckering up and putting their lips and taste buds into service? Apparently, these creations are to blame!

'Sips on 1st Espresso' is causing quite a stir on South 1st Street in Yakima and I witnessed first-hand the long lines, smiling faces and beautiful concoctions being handed out to patient patrons. According to one devotee seen slurping one down: “This place is amazing! We waited for about an hour during the busy time but it was worth it. We just made it into a family outing”.

You can see from different angles how the vehicles move through the line and take their turns. At one time, there were also cars parked in the numbered spaces on the lot, just to keep everyone organized. It truly was amazing to watch and delicious too - I treated myself to a fruity mango creation. It's sort of part fruit salad - part smoothie as best as I can tell. I might have to have another one just to be sure.
