Decent coffee in Seattle?

Tom Hilton | Oct 27, 1999 04:30 PM

I have to go up there periodically, and of course I have to drink coffee (or I'll die)...but I haven't had much luck finding a really good brew. I know enough to avoid Starbuck's; but I'm not savvy to the good stuff.

To avoid misunderstanding, let me define my terms: by "decent coffee", I mean roasted very dark (like Peet's) and brewed very strong (like Peet's)...in other words, as close as you can get to Peet's without actually being Peet's. (Unlike the Microsoft of coffee, Peet's is apparently not intent on world domination...hence, no Peet's in Seattle.)

Any help on this is greatly appreciated.
