I'm a man of simple expectations. Black coffee. Drip. Hot. No interest in the Bougie shenanigans that reigns around these parts. Just drip coffee. Hot. The 12 oz.  drip here is 2.20 (taxes included + refill).  Which is on the high end of the chill price range (1.50-2.25 as I see it). But without exception it is always delicious. Truly. They roast the beans directly behind the counter. Which I guess makes a difference. Somehow these guys have cracked the code on taking coffee seriously without any need to engage in weird didactic overshares or condescending coffee policing. With a very chill bar at the window facing out onto a sunny cemetery (lovely trees and vista + everybody is secretly put at ease by sunny graves), makes for a pleasant vibe to do stuff or talk to people or whatever. The space works out such that there is talking (not some silent coffee place like Broadcast in Roosevelt where everyone in there are dead silent laptop foot soldiers of lite-capitalism) but doesn't produce a distracting din. Porch-like chairs out front are real chill too and are properly shaded. Finally, the real charm here are the owners, Matt and Carlos. Kind, relaxed, into biking (again, without being weird and elitist about it). They're doing the roasting, the owning, the brewing, the whole bit. Real chill, real chill. <p>Easily the most consistently delicious drip I&rsquo;ve had in Seattle. I&rsquo;m a man of simple expectations. Black coffee. Drip. Hot.
