Seattle Coffee Works Buys Rights to Hammering Man

Not. But would anyone be that surprised if at some point in the not too distant future it was officially renamed the Starbucks Hammering Man?

Regarding Seattle Coffee Works: they are serving up some serious espresso. On that funky block on Pike between 1st and 2nd, right next door to the obnoxious 50’s rock and roll blaring from Johnny Rockets. Look for the black and orange coffee man on the sidewalk.

Sebastian typically has 7 or 8 grinders set up with different beans and blends to choose from. It’s like a wine tasting. And the doppios that he makes are consistently the best I’ve had anywhere.

So good that I’ll risk this declaration: Seattle Coffee Works has the best coffee in Seattle. Anyone out there have problem with that?

    […] dug the SCW vibe so much back then I blogged about it twice (check out hammering man ousted by drinking man and bacon cupcakes). SCW’s chatty German owner Sebastian was the first coffee snob to show me how […]
