Olympia Coffee Roasting Company
Olympia Coffee Roasting Company is one of those places you have to go to after you leave Seattle’s SeaTec airport. We got our rental car and headed to Olympia to find one of the premier coffee roaster and coffee shop in Olympia and we were not disappointed. Olympia Coffee Roasting Company is right in the downtown area of Olympia on Cherry Street. We walked in and our senses were treated to the aroma of fresh roasted coffee and freshly brewed coffee. I was in total coffee geek heaven. The front coffee bar area is done quite nice with some outstanding baristas tending bar and plenty of seating up front and some extra seating in the roasting room that is where I decided to enjoy my drink. My companion she had an iced mocha that was made with Olympia’s own dark chocolate sauce that totally rocked, my cappuccino was made to absolute perfection and was served on a wooden tray with a glass of soda water to clear my pallet, service there was spot on.
Our next surprise was the wonderful selection of fresh roasted coffee that is for sale, if you are a adventuresome sort ask the barista what their favorite coffee is and go with it, I did and I had my horizon expanded, I am now enjoying a coffee that is roasted to a new profile that I personally did not think it was possible to do. I love finding new ways to enjoy coffee.
The whole point of our trip to Olympia Coffee Roasting Company was due to the fact it was bragged about to me by several people who are coffee lovers to the extreme like me, they told me I had to go, I am proud to say I took their advice and am glad I did. Olympia is often over looked as a coffee drinking center, due to the fact it is rather out of the way from Seattle and there is not much of I-5 that really goes through there, so it is quite easy to just keep driving through and go to Portland to find your next coffee fix.
My suggestion is go to Olympia and discover their coffee culture it is down to earth and very user friendly
