Clover in the Seattle P-I

My friend Ula has beaten me to sampling coffee from the Clover coffee brewer. I’m extremely jealous; I thought living within walking distance of Five Guys and Pho 75 was nearly unbeatable, but living two blocks from the Stumptown Annex has its perks. Luckily, it looks like I’ll have my chance to try it at the upcoming Specialty Coffee Association of America convention in early April.

In the meantime, drink vicariously through these links: a feature story in the The Seattle Post-Intelligencer and a video of the machine in action at Elysian Coffee and Tea.

    I’m not a big coffee snob, so I’m not the best judge of coffee quality. That being said, I’d be interested to hear your opinion of the coffee produced at Ebenezer’s, the new coffee house near Union Station (2nd and F NE). Swing by if you’re ever in the neighborhood and let me know what you think!

    Who you calling a snob? ;)

    I saw your blog entry about them. If my schedule is open, maybe I’ll come check them out next week.

    I’m gonna be in San Francisco this summer. Have any fancy-coffee recs?

    Sure do. Blue Bottle Coffee was the best I had while I was in town (and one of my best ever, actually). They have a cool little kiosk in Hayes Valley, tucked away on Linden Street. Awesome espresso there.

    Ritual on Valencia is another hot shop to check out. They serve Stumptown, one of the roasters we tried at the Murky tasting. The place has also become known as a techie hang out, so you’ll fit right in.

    Though I only briefly stopped in, my friend in the city spends lots of time at Cafe du Soleil in the Lower Haight. It’s a Provence style cafe + wifi. Didn’t try the coffee.

    Finally, it’s worth stopping into Caffe Trieste for the history and Italian feel.

    I am trying to compile a comprehensive list of locations that have Clover machine in place and collect as many recipes as possible. All the data is for public use, just to keep the Clover community going. I started with locations and have quite a few now. Would be great if someone could share recipes as well at http://www.beclover.com
