Hi there!!! I was recently in Seattle and was doing my best to make the cafe circuit. I was on Capitol Hill at Victrola when I made my way to 15th Ave. Coffee and Tea. (SBUX) Once I arrived I jumped in to a cupping (which was terribly done) and had a Sidamo & Kenya by Zoka next to Stumptown and Starbucks.
They fucked up a lot of things on the table, just wanted to let you know. (Perhaps swing by sometime and let them know that you don't want Zoka coffees cupped improperly? IDK!
I work primarily at the Downtown store, which is open 6:30-6 m-f. We do private tastings several times a week, and usually at least one or two unoffical cuppings each week. I'm in Kona right now doing some farm touring, but I'll be back next monday.
