Every month, La Marzocco features a new guest roaster at their café in the KEXP building at Seattle Center. This one is from my hometown, Toronto!
Pilot Roasters was started in 2009 by a New Zealander-Canadian couple to advance micro-roasting culture in the city. They source their beans ethically and have four of their own cafes, one of which I can personally guarantee is quite lovely. I'll visit the rest over the holidays.
Bring your decorating skills, because I'm bringing an Ugly Sweater cookie kit!
Best buses are the 1, 2, 8, 13, 32 and D. You can take the 3, 4 or monorail as well.
