Anchorhead Coffee Co

Posted by

Something you may not know about me…I have detested coffee my whole adult life. Sounds crazy…in my degree (Computer Science), kids were drinking coffee, sodas, or energy drinks, not me! I refused…well coffee because I didn’t like the flavor, soda because I’m not a huge soda drinker, and energy drinks because I’m pretty sure the stuff that is in them probably isn’t safe for your body.

As I’ve gotten older I have realized that it wasn’t coffee that I disliked so much as it is Starbucks coffee that I hate. I know…completely blasphemous, I’m a Seattle girl, yet I hate Starbucks. Yup, that’s my thing. That being said, I have since gotten over myself and enjoy coffee, just not from Starbucks.

On Monday I took a stroll down 7th and Olive and found this adorable coffee shop attached to an office building, Anchorhead Coffee Co.


The thing about coffee shops in Seattle (if they aren’t a drive thru) they are geared towards creating a relaxing environment to sit and stay and Anchorhead was no exception.


They do serve a light breakfast/lunch menu so you could eat there, but what I chose to get was their nitro cold brew with chocolate milk, and yes, it was quite delicious.


Vibe: Large wrap around patio with plenty of tables if you are looking to sit outside. The vibe itself was very chill.
Cleanliness: Their station looked clean and the tables I saw were clean. They also wiped down after every drink.
Service: Service is hard to judge at coffee places because I feel like so much depends on how busy they are, so I hold judgment on service until I go again.
Flavor: The coffee mixed with the chocolate milk was divine! It had the right amount of bitter from the coffee and sweetness from the chocolate milk without being too overpowering.
Is it worth it: For the drink, yes! I want to try their pistachio matcha latte next time.


  1. How fun. I was the same as you for a while. I was 26 and had no addiction and obsession over coffee. I realized soon that I was just bothered by the obsession with it. Now, I drink it when I need it. I always love checking out small coffee businesses that we find when we travel.
