Drinking coffee in Seattle

In Seattle, you haven’t had enough coffee until you can thread a sewing machine while it’s running.

I don’t really know what this has to do with Seattle in particular, but the quote paints a great picture!

    lol, I had never heard that but its somewhat true….people here are so hyper on coffee I dont doubt they can indeed thread a needle with the sewing machine runnning. :-)

    One thing though, most coffee here is pretty bland! You need to stay away from the chains for super good cofee :D

    I was used to my grandma’s puerto rican coffee and trying coffee here was a bit disappointing. :-)

    Seattle is the home of Starbucks! I know, I know, evil coffee chain with bland coffee.. but they really changed how Americans ‘do’ coffee.

      Oh, thanks, dede! That explains a lot, and I didn’t even know Seattle was the home of Starbucks! By the way, I know many Europeans who love Starbucks:) I visit it too every now and then when I’m abroad (we don’t have it in Sweden – yet:))

    Yup, Seattle is the home of Starbucks and we drink a lot of coffee on the West Coast of North America. Also, the first Starbucks still exists at the Market and sells a lot more than coffee and other Starbucks chain stores.
