The coffee is just a bit better than average, pretty much what you'd expect from a chain coffee joint. It's on the same level as the green apron place, et al.

What makes me come back again and again is the variety of menu items that you cannot get elsewhere.

They have a LOT more sugar-free flavors than the usual coffee place. Sugar-free Irish Creme is one of the best. Add it to a hot latte on a cold day and you've got a real winner.

They also have fruit juice smoothies, pastries and assorted gift items including really cute mugs.

If you're a fan of frappucinos - oh sorry, "frappes" would be the generic name - then the absolute can't miss is the White Chocolate Lemon Frappe. It sounds weird and I waited a long time before taking the plunge, but it is the most deliciously decadent thing you will have in a very long time. Try it and you won't be sorry!

The down side is the same as any coffee place, especially in today's economy. Paying 5 bucks for a large coffee drink or frozen blended drink is far too much of a luxury to do very often.

I have been to both local Tera Vida coffee locations several times in the past couple of years. I have had very few good experiences. The Edmonds location seems to have very unmotivated employees with very tempermental attitudes. The coffee was gross, they let the shots sit too long and I know that they over steam their milk and scorch it. I have had better coffee at Starbucks, (whom I dispise). The Shoreline location didn't know what a breve was when I went there a few days ago. Apparently the girl was new, but isn't breve common knowledge? Come on now. What happened to the little guys being the good guys? This company seriously needs to re-evaluate their customer service expectations and get some more qualified management in there.
