Would you be shocked if I told you that there's no shortage of good coffee in Seattle?
In this caffeinated land, fortunately you don't have to worry about obtaining coffee wherever you may be, because there is a place at practically every corner. When you want coffee or simply must have it to function, sometimes proximity is all that truly matters. Since Brian doesn't drink coffee (I know, crazy right?), I pretty much let the coffee gods lead me to wherever happened to be closest at the time.
Being a rebel and all, I ordered a latte just about everywhere (hey, it was vacation). Not only did I enjoy those lattes, complete with their fancy foam art, but I admired that each coffee shop had so much character. I may not know the difference between a mad-scientist or retro Italian-looking coffee making contraption, but good branding and design will always get your coffee shop bonus points from me.
