Coffee Specials in Olympia, Yelm and Rochester
All three Northwest Grind locations are brewing up fun specials for October and November 2023. For the rest of October, try the Love Bites – a 32-ounce blended cookies and cream drink with strawberry puree, topped with whipped cream, a JELL-O syringe, candy corn, Halloween donut and glow-in-the-dark vampire teeth with a lid rolled in crunchy ghosts!
For those who need a big pick-me-up, try the Zombie Brains! Green Lotus energy drink topped with strawberry cold foam and strawberry popping boba. And remember Northwest Grind’s Lotus’ are on tap, making sure it’s the freshest and most carbonated Lotus you will ever taste.
Try both of these drinks before they go back to the grave on November 1!
But don’t fear, there will be more big specials starting November 1 to kick off your holidays! Try the Yippie Pie-Yay! This incredible drink is a 32-ounce blended with spiced chai drizzled with pumpkin sauce and topped with whipped cream, a caramel apple sucker, two rolled cookie wafers, and your choice of apple or pumpkin mini pie (choice while supplies last) with a lid rolled in graham crackers – it truly is an entire holiday dessert in one delicious drink!

Bubble Tea Specials in Yelm
Bubbleology in Yelm is the only Bubbleology location in the U.S. that is offering the monthly specials created especially by Bubbleology at its headquarters in London! “I worked on the owner a lot to allow us to bring these special drinks to our customers in Yelm because I want to give them as many options as we can,” shares Crystal. “I am so excited to be able to offer these incredibly tasty, limited bubble teas in Yelm.”
Before October 26, 2023, head to Northwest Grind/Bubbleology in Yelm to try their Harvest Fruit Punch which is pumpkin with white peach, strawberry and a sprig of rosemary with strawberry jelly topping. Or, try the Pumpkin Spice Boba which is pumpkin with cinnamon and boba pearls topped with whipped cream, cinnamon, and honeycomb cereal. This drink screams fall! Have a dairy allergy?

Any other coffee drinks last up to five days in the refrigerator. Order your favorite, take it to go and when you need a pick-me-up, it’s there!
New Mobile Orders Launching Soon at Northwest Grind Olympia
Crystal is also committed to making the customer experience as wonderful as it can be, and that includes shortening the wait whenever and however she can. “In Yelm we have runners now that come out and take orders whenever there are more than 2-3 cars in line,” she explains. “The team has worked really hard to master getting orders out quickly, while still being polite, friendly and having a bit of light conversation.”
Another way she is helping cut back wait times is through mobile app ordering. Both the Joe App and DoorDash will be available soon for the Northwest Grind Olympia location. “We are testing at this site and as long as all goes well, we will expand to our other two sites in a few weeks,” Crystal shares.
Those who make a mobile order can take advantage of priority parking right outside their Capital Mall location, just look for the Joe App parking spots next to the handicapped spaces. “It’s right outside our door,” Crystal says, “Maybe 25 steps?”
