Patrick Dempsey is still in negotiations to buy Tully's Coffee.
The "Grey's Anatomy" actor says the final sale has run into several obstacles, Puget Sound Business Journal reports.
No one from either side is saying much about the unexpected problems.
But his investor group, Global Baristas, has paid an additional $350,000 to keep Tully's operating while the parties work on the sale.
Dempsey and Global baristas outbid Starbucks for the Tully's chain back in January.
