    The spot for 3rd wave coffee in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. Rotating coffees from the nation's top toasters. Brewed coffee program focuses on Aeropress methods.

    The best coffee in Seattle. Jeff, Lucas, Corey and the rest of the crew are awesome. Chocolate chip cookie here is also good!

    Nice spot to work at or for a coffee/tea break. Great americano as well as the turmeric tonic tea. They have a few pastries.

    Good coffee. ☕️Normally I go for a cappuccino but in this case for the special brew of the day. WiFi. Plugs. Enough space for all coffee and Internet + cool vibe seekers.

    Great place. Amazing coffees. Coava, Stumptown & Intelligentsia. Check out the Theo super dark mocha, bitter but you can add a bit of vanilla. Cool vibe and nice people.

    Love this place—coffee, atmosphere, service, they have it all! 1 issue: lap tops take up most of the seats, which isn't their fault, but you'll need luck finding places to sit. Good luck!

    The friendly staff makes delicious pour overs. Usually with an Aeropress but you can ask for it to be done with a V60 or Chemex

    I love the Theo Mocha here—it's very rich and unique. The WiFi password is "milstead" spelled backwards.

    If you're patient and resourceful you can find a couple of hidden utility outlets on the outdoor patio. Between that and the lovely coffee you'll be thoroughly fueled for the morning.

    A @pandadoodie found fact via the barista in the Mariners hat: pastries come from two places, Macrina Bakery and La Toscanella. Ask them and they'll confirm where your pastry was "born" if you care.

    Get the milk chocolate mocha or vanilla latte! Dark chocolate was a tad too bitter even for my taste, and I generally love 70% dark chocolates.

    Only place I get mochas because they use Theo dark chocolate and you can ask for it not too sweet. Very rich.

    Look, I don’t mind paying for good, local coffee. But when a drink recently cost me $7 here, that was just a bit much. I’ll stick with brewed coffee here in future.
