Patrick Dempsey is now a coffee mogul!

Yep, you heard me.  The Demps pulled out a win Thursday, Jan. 3, during a private auction to buy Seattle-based Tully’s Coffee, his rep confirms to Us Weekly. The Grey’s Anatomy actor, 46, outbid Starbucks with $9.15 million for the coffee chain.

Not too shabby, McDreamy!  Surprisingly, this isn’t Dempsey’s first foray into the world of morningtime brews.  Dempsey is s a member of the investment group Global Baristas, a group dedicated to supporting and unifying coffee entrepreneurs.  Dempsey felt confident, though he was still nervous about winning the auction.
“In Seattle, big day tomorrow! Hope we pull it off!” he tweeted Wednesday with a photo of himself at a Tully’s shop with an employee.

And…he did!  The day after, Dempsey tweeted:

“We met the green monster, looked her in the eye, and . . . she blinked! We got it!” he announced. “Thank you Seattle!”

Aw!  Yay celebs fighting for the small business!
