Capitol Hill Pets | Joni — the photographer’s dog — on 12th Ave

CHS caught up with Jess (human) and little Joni Mitchell (canine) on 12th Ave. Joni, a terrier mix, was fresh from a springtime grooming at Rex. Joni is a 9-year-old Texas transplant, coming along with Jess in 2010. Getting on in years, Joni’s high jumps and land speed records are lower and slower, but she has the uncanny ability to make people want to pet her, and she loves it. Currently living on Beacon Hill, Joni’s trips to Capitol Hill are a treat, literally. Joni is also my dog, the Corvette behind Joni, though, is not.

Now, travel up into the hills, up the Snoqualmie or the Skykomish rivers maybe, and wend your way back into a cold deep valley.

From its genesis as a Broadway coffee cart to its current incarnation comprising two storefronts, a sidewalk stand, and a 5,000-square-foot roasting plant, Vivace has established a reputation for technical excellence in coffee preparation. They were on the vanguard of the artisan espresso revolution, educating both industry and customers and defining expectations for high-end coffee from flavor to equipment to the foam art in your latte.
