Welcome to the coffee capital of the USA! While Seattle is famous for being the birthplace of Starbucks, the city is absolutely brimming with world-class cafes and roasteries. The tour begins at the Jimi Hendrix statue, paying homage to the Seattle native and his significant musical contributions. Here you’ll meet your local guide who will show you around Seattle’s vibrant and busy Capitol Hill neighbourhood. Along the way, we’ll pop into local cafes and coffee shops to sample different brews. Here we’ll learn about the history of our favourite caffeinated beverages as well as more unique and special offerings. We’ll also learn about coffee production and roasting techniques. You may get to try anything from infused coffee to a decadent espresso invented in Seattle. Coffee standards are high in Seattle, so you can expect to visit a range of locally owned spots that take pride in what they do, with beans hand selected from some of the best roasters in the country. While you’re getting caffeinated and educated on everything from single origin to sustainable brews, you’ll also learn about Capitol Hill, one of the city’s coolest neighbourhoods. The area has historically been, and still is, closely associated with counterculture, and is known for its diverse, conscious and LGBTIQ+ communities. Pass by iconic music venues associated with Seattle’s world-famous grunge scene, as well as more modern venues for electronic music. As we explore, your guide will point out plenty of places where you can listen to live music or grab food, cocktails, or even more coffee after your tour.We reserve the right to change both the route and places visited within the tour.
