New Starbucks open today

Posted by Meghan Walker on April 9th, 2012

Today was the first day of business at the new location for Starbucks on NW Market St. The coffee house is in the space formally occupied briefly by 5 Corners Market Bar & Kitchen. The space previously housed Lombardi’s for 23 years.

The new location is on the corner of 22nd Ave NW and NW Market St, just one door east of their previous location.

At just before 9 a.m., the new store was already beginning to fill up with customers eager for a glance at the new location. With its tall ceilings, ample seating, and spacious layout, it’s a far cry from their former store next door.

Store manager Jen Neill says the location is unique because it has a Clover coffee machine. According to Neill, there are less than 300 of the machines in Starbucks around the country. The Clover, which is a Ballard-made coffee maker, is a combination of a French press and a vacuum press. It costs a little bit more than regular drip coffee, but allows baristas to regulate the water temperature, coffee grind, coffee-to-water ratio and brew time.

    Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon every day.

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into
    any internet browser compatibility issues? A couple of
    my blog audience have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.
    Do you have any suggestions to help fix this

    Very descriptive post, I loved that a lot. Will there be a part 2?

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both educative and engaging,
    and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.

    Now i’m very happy I came across this during my search for
    something regarding this.

    I’m not sure why but this blog is loading extremely slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
