What you'll do

You will be guided on a small, intimate tour of three of the best specialty coffee shops in downtown Seattle, all of which also host their own micro-roasting operations. The three locations will all be within easy walking distance of each other and are chosen on a basis of historical significance, quality, and ingenuity. Each location will come with a background of the coffee shop/roaster’s history and what makes them worth visiting. During the tour you will learn about the origins of coffee, its history in Seattle, and the culture of the modern specialty coffee scene. You'll also learn all about how it is grown, harvested, processed, and roasted. The tours are kept to small groups of four to ensure an intimate experience that allows you to ask questions and have more stimulating conversations…and also because securing seats for groups larger than five in coffee shops can be difficult…and because I personally don’t really like large groups of people. So I guess you could say this tour is very introvert-friendly *awkward high five*.

Hello there! My name is Lu, and I started Specialty Coffee Tours as a way for me to share my passion by teaching people about the liquid magic that is coffee, while also bringing well-deserved attention to some of the best coffee makers and roasters in Seattle. I’ve come to realize that many people are deeply curious about the intricacies of coffee, but often find the idea of striking up a conversation with their barista intimidating due to the fear of asking “dumb” questions. But hey, don’t worry, we’ve all been there. Before I knew anything about coffee I once tried to order a 12oz macchiato *shakes my head in shame*. This tour is for both people who know nothing about coffee, and even those who think they know everything. It is for curious minds and friendly folks, and I hope you will be one of them :) View more at: coffeetours.biz

Where you'll be

First up is a roaster that offers exceptional espresso beverages in a somewhat hidden, warm, and exceptionally designed space. They also have an awesome in-house baking program. The second stop will be with a coffee roaster that is relatively new to the scene, starting as a bottled cold-brew company selling to retailers such as PCC and Whole Foods. The final location is a roaster that truly sets the bar in all levels of the specialty industry.
