I want you to close your eyes for a second and imagine a place where the coffee is just as good as the scenery. I must admit that Vermont has both of these things. However, there are some places that offer scenery on such a grand scale that it is often humbling to witness. I have recently returned from a long journey to Seattle, a place that many would consider the Coffee City of the United States, maybe even the world.
My coffee pilgrimage began when I touched down in Seattle at 12:24 AM. I must admit after a 5 hour and 50 minute flight from Newark I decided it was best to get some much needed rest before exploring the sights and smells of the Seattle Coffee scene.
By 10:30 AM I was ready to get my bearings and venture out to the closest coffee shop to order a heavily caffeinated beverage. After taking a photo of the view from my hotel room I walked just around the corner and found myself staring at one of the original Tully’s Coffee Shops. It was then that I knew I was in the right place! I immediately ran inside and ordered up a double shot of espresso and a 16 oz. mocha latte with skim milk.
