passion is illogical – astoria coffee and tea company.

rick runs the astoria coffee and tea company. he speaks for coffee. his passion is so illogical it makes sense. he never sells a bean that is older than 10 days old and is always ready to talk coffee.

trust us, check his beans out, they might be the finest on the entire west coast… no joke, no sales pitch – we really do love his coffee.
