Seattle through coffee, chowder and airplanes3 min read . Updated: 02 Sep 2021, 11:01 AM IST
Even though the summers are better to travel, Seattle is famous for its Christmas- themed festivals
If you’ve ever had a love affair with coffee, and are partial to the bean instead of tea leaves, a trip to Seattle can never be lukewarm. One might now look at large coffee shop chains with slight disdain, but to stand at the original door of one of the biggest coffee chains in the world is truly humbling. That’s what Shashaank Bawari felt standing outside the 1971 established Starbucks at Pike Place market in Seattle. A deployment manager at British-owned publishing service, Pearson Education, Bawari, 35, was visiting the city for a work trip. Seattle is known to be the thriving home to some of the largest conglomerates of US. The trip naturally morphed around some of these stalwarts. He sampled coffee at the original Starbucks, visited the headquarters of Microsoft for the first time, and took a trip to see the Boeing Everett Factory, an airplane assembly building owned by the plane company.
