Tacoma’s sights are best enjoyed with a cup of locally roasted coffee in hand. Luckily, there are many quality coffeehouses in which to enjoy a steaming espresso and absorb some of the local culture.
The Sixth Avenue Business District is home to multiple coffee roasters and coffee shops. Valhalla Coffee Company hand-roasts its beans in small batches, creating a perfectly executed cup. Bluebeard Coffee Roasters features a range of specialty coffees roasted in-house. The friendly baristas and comfortable atmosphere make for a pleasant place to spend an afternoon. Metronome Coffee is the coffee aficionado’s dream, with a variety of preparations sure to please even the most particular customers.
Not on Sixth Avenue? Stop in to Corina Bakery for a cup of Valhalla Coffee or local Mad Hat Tea — and don’t forget to try one of their spectacular pastries. Forza Coffee Company has multiple locations in the Tacoma area, and serves locally roasted Dillanos Coffee.
