It’s cool to live in Seattle….

It’s cool to live in Seattle because at any given time you might stumble upon one of the coolest coffee shops in the world. Let me introduce you to Fuel Coffee.  It’s on 19th about 2 blocks from Republican on Capital Hill. Very cool little shop with really cool people hanging out both inside and outside. Free wi/fi and good coffee. You can’t ask for a much better Wednesday afternoon find.  Also, on the same block is the Kingfish Cafe.  I’ll blog on that place after I eat there.

What do you love about the city you live in?

It’s cool to live in Seattle…

Starbucks

Everywhere you go…you’re never too far from starbucks.  Now, even when you don’t know you’re near one…there it is…in Target, Safeway, Albertsons, or even our church.  Well, since Seattle is the home of Starbucks and we hail the Pike Place store as the first one….then that is cool enough for me.  It’s cool to live in Seattle because we can visit a place in our community like this…

Why is it cool to live in your town?

Meghan Coffee

How can you not love someone with the name Coffee?  Carlos posted this post today about the CD release tonight for Meghan Coffee.  I’m not going to claim to know her because I don’t.  But, click here to go to her webstite and click here to buy her CD.  Watch the video of one of her songs and prepare to be flored.  The song is Psalm Two.  I love it.  Video….Well Done!

It’s cool to live in Seattle.

It’s cool to live in Seattle because you are always less than 5 minutes from really good coffee.  Besides the fact that Starbucks, Tully’s, & SBC come from Seattle.  There a bunch of really cool little roasters who do an incredible job roasting and serving espresso.  One of them is David Schomer with Espresso Vivace.  Espresso Vivace has been around for many years doing a great job on each pull.  If you want a quick cup of coffee…go to the various corporate coffee shops.  If you want a piece of art, go to Espresso Vivace.  They make it a true art.  Located up in Capital Hill, not only do you get to engage in the best cup of coffee in your life…but you also get to hang with a really cool crowd.  Brenda & I will often make the 60 minute drive into Seattle just for this wonderful piece of heaven.  Espresso Vivace is another reason why it’s cool to live in Seattle.

Starbucks at Target

I have a dream that one day I’ll be able to go into Targe with my wife and slip into a fully equipped Starbucks and drink the perfect drink while my wife shops.  Then, once she’s done…I simply pick up my perfect drink and walk to the car with my wife.  I have a dream!  Today I realized that this is not just a dream but yet a reality.  We walked into Target…Brenda shopped…I drank the perfect cup.  It’s a good day.

 

The Perfect Cup.  “americano with cream”

Where is your favorite “non-starbucks” Starbucks and what is your perfect cup?
