Full description

Embark on a journey through the coffee capital of the USA, Seattle, where world-class cafes and roasteries are abundant. The tour starts at the Jimi Hendrix statue, paying tribute to the Seattle native and his significant musical contributions, and here you'll meet your local guide who will take you on a tour of the vibrant Capitol Hill neighborhood.

Throughout the tour, we'll visit local cafes and coffee shops, trying a variety of different brews, from classic favorites to unique and special offerings, and learn about the history, production and roasting techniques of coffee. You'll get to experience the coffee culture of Seattle, with possibilities of trying anything from infused coffee to a decadent espresso invented in Seattle. Coffee standards are high in Seattle and you will experience some of the best beans, hand-selected from some of the best roasters in the country. While you are getting your caffeine fix and learning about coffee, we will also explore Capitol Hill, one of the most iconic neighborhoods in the city known for its counterculture, diverse, conscious and LGBTQ+ communities. See iconic music venues associated with Seattle's world-famous grunge scene, as well as modern venues for electronic music. Your guide will also point out plenty of places to grab food, cocktails, or even more coffee after the tour.

Lee was our guide during our trip. He was super friendly and extremely helpful plus knowledgeable about the origins of coffee as well where coffee is going in the likely future. It was very interesting and really well researched plus thought out. The walk was very decent and weather was totally on our side for this walking tour. It was nice introduction to a few local roasters and brewers in Seattle and I love supporting local businesses the most. Definitely appreciate the time and effort to put through this. Thank you so very much. Couple side notes for users: You meet at the Jimmy Hendrix statue outside the art supply place; not inside the store. This tour is 3 stops long (not mentioning where) from local roasters to Seattle. It was definitely a good walk so definitely recommend appropriate footwear.

Great walking and coffee tasting tour. All small coffee houses with completely different tastings. Our guide, Carter, was fantastic. She was friendly, and knew history of coffee in Seattle as well as Seattle history in general.
