Seattle is the mothership of Starbucks, of course, but we have any number of other coffee chains that make this entire city Coffee Central. You can find a coffee shop about every ten feet downtown, and people here drink coffee all day long. People hold business meetings in coffee shops, interview for jobs, and show up for Match.com first dates. People who live in condos and apartments work all day in coffee shops, because it’s more social than being home alone and tapping away on the computer.
All of that coffee shop traffic sparks innovation in coffee drinks, as in Cherry Street Coffee Shop’s One & One: a shot of espresso straight up, and a shot of espresso in a macchiato, with a shot of sparkling water on the side.
Great if you want to get really wired for the day. 🙂
