Seattle's Coffee Culture
It is one o’clock in Seattle. You are walking down the street. A lot of people are outside for lunch. You see a woman. She is holding a white and GREen paper cup. You see another person. He is also holding a cup in his hands. You see another and another. Everyone has a cup in their hands! What are they all drinking? You smell the Seattle air. It’s coffee!
People in Seattle love coffee. Some say it’s because Seattle has many rainy days and people need coffee to be happy. Others say coffee shops are popular because Seattle people are very laid-back and relaxed.
Coffee shops in Seattle are a lot like teahouses in China. In Seattle, people go to coffee shops to talk to friends, read, play games, work on the computer, or relax. Coffee is an important part of people’s day.
The world’s largest coffee shop chain, Starbucks, first opened in Seattle in 1971. But Starbuck is not the only popular coffee shop in the city. There are other large chains, like Seattle’s Best Coffee, Caffe Ladro, or Tully’s. Seattle also has many small neighborhood coffee shops. Everyone has their favorite.
