I have heard for years that Seattle has the best coffee, and I am dying to try it.
I recently found a coffee blog that I am in love with called Seattle Coffee Scene. What I like most about this blog is that they cover coffee shops and they call them coffee houses, that’s so Seattle. I found it really interesting that this blog is broken up into different sections of the city whereas I focus on Austin in general. I like their approach better, because it gives people the opportunity to choose a shop in their area, or search for any area that they will be visiting. With each post, this blogger also provides a map, so their audience can have a better understanding as to where everything is located.
When it comes to any online review, people want to see pictures. Every time I yelp something, I expect to look at pictures so I can get a visual of what I am dealing with. I need to see the space in the coffee shop, the coffee and my surroundings. I’m a coffee shop snob, sorry about it. Seattle Coffee Scene has AMAZING photos. Every single blog post gives you a creative coffee picture with a bit of scenery to further express what they feel about the coffee house. Also, this blogger is a latte lover, which brings them straight to my heart. Almost every picture is a huge latte with art on top, my favorite.
At the bottom of their homepage, they have a place where you can submit coffee job openings, and also browse openings from around the city. I think that is a really cool touch and I am considering adding that to my blog. I also really enjoyed the section about the various coffee roasters around Seattle. Personally, I would love to go around Austin to interview and see all of the coffee roasters and how it all works. I found that portion very interesting. Lastly, this blogger has a section where they store all of their previous photos in a photo gallery. I love going through and looking at the latte art and the shops, so that is a section I am seriously considering adding to my own blog!
Overall, this blog is awesome! I will read it occasionally, and when I visit Seattle this will be my go-to for all things coffee.
