VIDEO: Seattle, America’s Coffee Afficionado

USA Today Travel’s local caffeine afficionados Captain and Clark share their favorite independent coffeeshops in the Seattle area. The cup runs over for travelers looking for local spots beyond the iconic Starbucks flagship.


  1. I am a coffee snob and as someone who loves to travel to Seattle, they do have some great tasting coffee there. I like that while Seattle is located within the states, its coffee is tasted everywhere around the world. I also know that the creators of Seattle’s best coffee has a lot of experience in espresso tasting. I also have worked as a barista, which we were required to taste straight espresso for bitterness, which wasn’t always easy. 

  2. It’s bizarre how entire buildings and cultures are built around something that just used to be combination of hot water and coffee beans. I’ve never been a huge fan of coffee (too bitter), but even I’ve got to admit that what lovers of it have done with it in Seattle and all over the world is amazing. 

  3. As a coffee addict I found this video to be really interesting! I knew that Seattle was like Starbucks headquarters but I’ve been getting a little bored with it lately so getting more information about different coffeeshops is awesome! I can’t wait till the next time I’m in Seattle so I let my coffee tastebuds explore something new

  4. After watching this video, I definitely want to try the deconstructed latte! It looks amazing! 

  5. I have been wanting to travel to Seattle my whole life! I think the culture is very similar to Colorado (which is where I grew up).  The coffee culture is very interesting to me and I would love to see how a culture is essentially based off such a raw good.
