It was bound to happen in a city that loves whimsy and caffeine. You've seen "Hammering Man," either the giant articulated iron worker sculpture here in Seattle in front of SAM (I showed you part of him in an iPhone shot here) or in one of his other incarnations across the US. Well, meet Coffee Drinking Man, the logo that's been translated into a new 14 foot high sign that went up above its small Pike Street coffee roaster in mid July. He is quite a hit with everyone in the neighborhood, and marks the location of Seattle Coffee Works, who moved digs this year from 111 Pike to its current shop at 107 Pike.
