Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room
Sundays are one of my favorite days of the week -- it's a day to recuperate, relax and explore! This Sunday I decided it was the perfect day to tackle one of my Seattle bucket list items, the Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room. I stopped by the space late morning to try and beat the morning or afternoon crowds, it was still busy but I loved the vibe inside! From the layout of the space to the branding to the food and beverage displays and options, Starbucks nailed it. I loved being able to sit and watch the busy baristas at work, surrounded by product displays and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee. The space consists of a shop featuring products (I couldn't resist picking up a few souvenirs!), the coffee bar where you can order, sip/eat and relax and a downstairs bar that's more conversational. Here are some snapshots of my solo trip to the roastery. I highly recommend the visit and I can't wait for my next one!
