Coffee insiders at Sprudge.com have the scoop on a new caffeine dealer destined for the popular Melrose Market:
Under the heading of “Shops To Watch Out For”, a new cafe in Seattle’s Capitol Hill Neighborhood set to open the week of August 16th: Bar Ferd’nand Coffee, the work of longtime industry stalwart Louie Poore, a space seemingly poised to be a worthy counterpoint to claims that Seattle is kind of stuck in the past. Look for an opening menu of coffees from Heart and Stumptown – a delicious twosome – and brewed coffee available via Aeropress only. That’s two firsts, if you’re counting: Bar Ferd’nand Coffee will be Seattle’s first dedicated Aeropress bar, and the city’s first location to serve Heart Coffee Roasters.
Sprudge says the cafe will also provide high class joe from a “polyglamorous roaster menu” to the patrons at Sitka and Spruce. The Bar Ferd’nand Wine Bar recently celebrated its first anniversary in the Melrose space. How the wine glasses and mugs fit together isn’t totally clear but we’re sure they’ll explain all that and more on the BFC Facebook page.
