No Coffee?!

Seattle is almost in our backyard and that’s where we were this weekend helping our kiddos do some painting in their new house. We had a great time.

Seattle is also a coffee town (you know, Starbucks, Seattle’s Best, etc.) with a coffee shop on every corner and an espresso machine in every lobby.

So imagine my surprise when I went to make coffee in my hotel room this morning and discovered to my horror that the coffee maker didn’t work. How can that be? This is Seattle! The day doesn’t officially start until you’ve had your first cup of coffee.

So I did what any other quick thinking Seattleite would do. I went down to the coffee shop in our hotel lobby and bought two tall lattes. And then it dawned on me.

Of course the coffee maker in the room was broken. It was all part of a great coffee conspiracy to force me to buy coffee at a local brewing establishment. In fact I’ll bet if I sampled coffee makers in most of the hotels in town I’d find the same thing.

So let this be a warning to you. The next time you visit Seattle, make sure you have your Gold Card fully loaded.

Cheers – DJD
