Yes, I know that Starbucks came from Seattle and yes, I know that the Reserve is there and you need to check it out (I wrote an article about it remember?) but did you know that there are other coffee shops other than Starbucks in Seattle that you need to check out? Well if you're going to Seattle any time soon and want to try non Starbucks coffee you need to check out these coffee shops:
A well known roaster in the industry, serving up their own coffee in a relaxed atmosphere. Definitely worth trying out if you're near Pike place market.
This shop does it's best to feature a new coffee roaster every month from across the world of coffee. They allow the coffee roaster to take over the shop and implement menu items and offer a new experience to the customers. Make sure to visit once a month to check out the new themes and of course....the coffee.
This shop does it's best to showcase its love of coffee with every cup served. A simple motto but makes sure that every time you go you have an amazing cup of coffee that will leave you wanting more.
Slate coffee Roasters has been around for about 3 years now and has established itself in the area as a high-quality coffee shop. Serving up coffee in unique ways, like getting a cappuccino in a brandy glass, you will definitely feel classy drinking coffee here.
A small batch roaster offering freshly roasted beans through their hand roasted cast-iron roasters. They focus on quality and ensuring that every customer has a flavorful coffee experience.
A specialty coffee company that's been around Seattle since 2006. A roaster that offers a dynamic atmosphere. When you first walk in it feels more like a bar than a coffee shop, but don't be fooled, they serve up some great tasting coffee. This specific location has a great view so go grab a cup of their coffee and just enjoy the ambiance.
So ends another list of coffee shops. If you're in the area of any of these shops make sure to go check them out and let me know what you think. If there's a coffee shop you love that's not on this list send me a quick message and I'll make sure next time I'm in Seattle to go check it out.
