Portland may think itself an unofficial coffee capital of the world, but neighboring Seattle certainly stakes a claim to that moniker. After all, it is the home base of Starbucks – the company that almost single-handedly ushered in the coffee renaissance of today. Here we take a look inside the flagship Starbucks in Seattle’s posh Capitol Hill – a spectacle of a space featuring two coffee bars, a shop, in-house kitchen, and two-story library. Underlining all of this is the roasting plant, where Starbucks produces its “small batch” Reserve beans and ships them to the world. Enjoy a look through this location above.
