It was a full house when I arrived at Eugene Coffee Company on Halloween day, but I didn't mind waiting in line for my eggnog latte. We were all there to put our money where our mouths were, showing support for the coffee shop that we collectively voted as Eugene's greenest. The Eugene Carrotmob invited area coffee shops to participate in this years Carrotmob competition and of the three that accepted the challenge to 'green-up', Eugene Coffee Company received the most votes. So today we "mobbed" the winning business with our patronage, which was the dangling carrot incentive for the competing coffee shops to look for more eco-friendly, sustainable ways of doing business. My eggnog latte was yummy and I got to meet Sue Harnly, owner of Eugene Coffee Company (Sue's one of those people you just like instantly). E.C.C. serves locally roasted and organic Cafe Mam coffee. They also offer a nice assortment of pastries including toasted bagels and donuts. I had a nice visit. My drink was good and the people were great. Stop by and check out Eugene Coffee Company just off of 18th Avenue on Chambers street if you haven't already. The shop is wheelchair friendly, handicap accessible and has a drive-through window if you don't have time to stop in to have your coffee. c[_]
