We vacationed in Seattle in early June. I was there to run a race and visit in-laws, but I did drag people to a few coffee places. One of the more remarkable locations we visited was Slate Coffee Bar
We ordered Cappuccino Deconstructed. Turns out a Capp is made of milk and espresso so the deconstruction wasn’t that exciting 🙂 The brilliance of the drink was the use of stemware.
Small capps don’t need to be kept crazy hot, especially since the drinks were appropriately sized and not some venti-trenti whatever sized bucket of milk. The stemware was a fun elegant touch that I hadn’t considered doing at home.
Contrary to Yelp reviews, the site does have chocolate drinks. We ordered a hot chocolate for one of my kids. Keeping with the fancy schmancy coffee bar style, it is a nice single origin chocolate bean. I liked the depth of the chocolate, although my kids prefer a more traditional kid flavored chocolate (aka Nesquick).
