Watertown is a big, industrial cube of a place with board games and comfy garage-sale furniture, situated near Seattle University but more popular with neighborhood hipsters and university employees than students. Every afternoon it metamorphoses from coffeehouse to bar. You can get coffee all day, but how seriously could an espresso/booze bar hybrid take its coffee? Last time we were in, our barista was dissatisfied with the grinder’s performance and apologetically pulled three shots before deeming one worthy of serving. “For a straight shot, a slightly tight grind is not acceptable,” she said. The shot was perfect, of course.
