Skylar was our talented barista and he made us a double shot Ethiopian espresso and Colombian pour over in a Kalita Wave. Espresso in a snifter... aromatic raspberry vanilla cola. Colombian was unlike most. Lighter with some lemon citrus and lime as it cooled. Chocolate...More

When our friends said this was the best coffee in Seattle, we were somewhat skeptical... I mean, there are so many different coffee places, how could one be so far superior to the others? However, it lived up to the expectations that had been created!...More

Seems like most coffee shops in Seattle only have a dark roast or maybe medium at best for their coffee. Slate only has light roast and it is some of the best coffee I have had in a long time. I don't like the dark...More

Visiting Seattle for the first time and even though I'm not a coffee drinker I wanted to have a local cup before flying out. Slate has a great vibe and I felt very welcomed walking in. Let them decide what I'd be drinking that morning...More

A fun idea to serve your customers a deconstructed espresso in mini wine glasses. The coffee place itself was tiny with more room outside on its patio than inside. But the inside was elegant with white painted wood and old fashioned feel. Not a cafe...More

A large variety of high-quality coffee, and brewed in different ways. Coffee was awesome, service was mediocre. Information about the coffee was vague. With a singular coffee focus, I wanted the barista to geek out on the different coffees. However, the employees didn't really seem...More
