Start your journey with a panoramic drive through Seattle, viewing many of the Emerald City's highlights en route.
Watch for Seattle's sports stadiums and discover the historic flavor of Pioneer Square -- Seattle's birthplace dating back to 1852. You'll pass the International District and tour through the downtown core and shopping district.
Circle the Seattle Center campus on your way to the Space Needle. This striking landmark is also a fantastic observation tower. Race to the top by elevator for an unforgettable vista of the Seattle skyline and Elliott Bay.
Seattle is North America's version of coffee central, so next up is a visit to the Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room. Join your host for a coffee journey as you rotate through different experiences, including the art of brewing, flight tasting, sample roasting and a fun lesson in executing latte art. The art and science of the roasting process requires precision as it transforms green beans into aromatic roasted coffee. Study the tasting characteristics of coffee, identifying acidity, aroma, body and flavor. Learn the fundamentals of brewing great coffee (proper proportion, accurate grind, quality water and fresh coffee). Put together the details of these fundamentals and you're well equipped to brew infinitely better coffee at home.
