While Lawrence Green has partnered up with his daughter, Courtney Lockey (five-year Starbucks veteran), opening the Fircrest coffee house several months ago, its name, as you might have predicted, centers on the “green” ethics of its owners. Better than fair trade organic coffee from Dillanos Coffee Roasters in Sumner, an energy efficient operation and use of recycled materials are a way of life at The Greener Bean, as well as tea from Mad Hat Tea, couches, a library, conference room, chess, free Wi-Fi and an open mic every Friday from 8-10 p.m.

The food — grilled paninis, sandwiches, soups, salads and breakfast items originate in the Greener’s kitchen. A cousin bakes the pastries, which include moist raspberry scones. And everything rings in under $5.

All your favorite espresso drinks — as well as a few creative ones such as Mayan Mocha Mexican Monkey —are available with plenty of beverage options for the kiddies.

Hours: 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.

This is a cool coffee and tea bistro smack dab in the middle of a tiny little town. Great owners and fantastic atmosphere make this a staple local watering hole. They carried the green/earth friendly mantra throughout their building process and the reclaimed wood makes this shop feel like home. Not your grandma's home... but a cool young hip home to guzzle down some sweetness on the run or slow sip some exotic teas. 3 out of 2 Thumbs UP!

Was a great place but has recently gone down hill. Not many food choices... not well equiped and unfriendly staff. Try Espresso Yourself next door!

great place said on Dec. 20, 2010 at 2:27pm

The above comment is ridiculously far off... Incredible coffee, great pastries made in store, amazing atmosphere and friendly staff who have gone out of there way for me when asked! I love to study here or meet with friends and chat for hours. Whhile espresso-ur- self is a cute little place, their coffee is average, staff is unwelcoming and there is never seats and if you luck out and get one of about 8, they are uncomfortable.

I enjoy getting a great cup of coffee, and here is where I come every time now. If I want great food I go elsewhere. I have never understood people who expect "great" food at a coffee shop, that's what restaurants are for. Looking at the reviews here, I would guess that 'Sad Story' is an employee at the shop down the road that was mentioned. If you want great coffee every time and to meet an incredible guy, Larry Green, go here and say 'hello'.
