The Slow Bar
One of their unique offerings is their "Slow Bar". Store owner Sebastian Simsch told me that his is the only such bar in the Seattle area. Approximately 20 percent of his customers frequent the Slow Bar.
For a coffee aficionado, the Slow Bar is coffee heaven. The Seattle Coffee Works web site describes it best. Quoting from their web site,
Seattle Coffee Works The popular and unique Slow Bar
"You'll know you have arrived at the Slow Bar when you see the map of the world's coffee belt, a wide variety of coffee-making equipment, and a vast selection of single-origin coffees from all four coffee-growing regions around the world.
"Come here to taste coffee varietals, test different methods of extraction, meet fellow coffee geeks, or celebrate a special occasion with a prized cup of coffee. This is a place to indulge your sense of curiosity and revel in the spirit of inquiry. There's so much more to coffee than meets the eye, and the best coffees and blends are yet to be developed. Partner with us on this journey of coffee innovation!
"Our Slow Bar is what makes us unique in the world of coffee. It's part ritual, part playground and part science lab. We will make you any cup of coffee to order."
Store owner Sebastian Simsch did say that they have four to six cuppings a year.
