Happy One Year Anniversary to the Roastery!

2 -1 - 20151111_065228[1] the roasteryThe Seattle Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room turns one year old today! Happy first birthday! December 5, 2014, Howard Schultz opened the doors to the Roastery at 8:00 AM. The opening moment photo (featuring Howard Schultz) in that article was taken by my friend, Brad Kovach, who was the first customer in line!

There's new merchandise at the Roastery. If you're dropping by soon, take a look at the new mugs:

The classic Roastery mug now comes in a smaller 3-ounce size. It's not obvious what it's size is without the larger 8-ounce mug next to it:
