The conveniently located Torque Coffee Shop sits along I-5 in southwest Washington State, an area that was previously considered a coffee desert for anxious commuters who frequented the route. Torque also runs a restaurant wholesale component of the business.

Located between Seattle and Portland, the Torque shop sits within a former mechanics garage, with much of the original structural details kept in place to create a charming, unique experience. The auto-themed cafe is endlessly charismatic, with retro-feeling seating, a classic chalkboard menu and the remaining garage doors that have been painted over with the brand's red-tinged logo.

Given the reputation of both Seattle and Portland as coffee havens, the Torque Coffee shop provides a caffeine kick for those in transit who forgot to pack a bottled cold brew.
