the starbucks reserve roastery

Starbucks recently opened a new special location in Capitol Hill (Downtown Seattle). It is a beautifully designed 15,000 square-foot space with a heavenly aroma. I was quite surprised when I entered the building because it was like a factory! It is a roasting facility, cafe, and a restaurant, with plenty of seating. You won't find any frappuccinos here; they have a unique menu available only at this location. I ordered the "Shakerato Bianco" which is a classic italian shakerato with a shot of fior di latte (aka sweet cream). Everything here was extra fancy, and I liked that. You'll definitely get a different vibe here compared to all the other Starbucks. Be sure to make a visit if you're in the area!   — Minna
