Coffee

 


Yeah, We Totally Has Coffee Here
 
Seattle is known as a coffee town. From the ubiquitous reminder of Kara Thrace (that’s totally the origin of the name, right?), to hang-out / write-your-novel coffee shops, to coffee tastings and meticulous roasters, Seattle has a lot of options for the coffee-lover (or coffee-lover adjacent).
