Lattelicious, a drive-through coffee cart located in the Vineyard Plaza parking lot, supplies on-the-go customers with café drinks and baked treats such as chocolate-filled croissants. Baristas marry shots of espresso with steamed milk to make signature lattes, and also craft energizing drinks such as cappuccinos, frappés, and Red Bull beverages. Many drinks can also be made lactose-free.

There's a popular saying that it's the little things that count, and Division Java's staff takes that to heart with a variety of little touches that enhance the customer experience. In addition to using the freshest products to make bubble teas and smoothies and serving up locally roasted drip coffee, the baristas form ice cubes out of coffee to ensure that iced coffees don't get watered down. Plus, they infuse iced or blended Red Bull drinks with a variety of flavorings?such as passion fruit and pomegranate?giving patrons their own custom energy-boosting creation.

Division Java also gives four-legged friends who accompany their owners at the drive-thru window a doggie treat. And they give every child who comes through a piece of candy.

In a profile for Oregon Live, Matt Perry said he got the idea to open a coffee shop in 2010, shortly after returning from service in Iraq with the Oregon Army National Guard. He was taking a community-college business course and had to make the plans for a shop as an assignment. Two years later, he was able to realize his plans with the cozy two-story business named after his english mastiff.

Toasty aromas of Portland Roasting Coffee's beans waft through the shop as baristas fill mugs and steam silky lattes. Several healthy drinks provide an alternate jolt of nutrition, from berry smoothies enhanced with flax or multivitamins to green juices, such as the Army Greens with a blend of kale, spinach, ginger, and patriotic speeches. Upstairs, leather chairs and a cozy love seat reside in a bright space illuminated by sunlight filtering through arched windows.
