Let's just call them trendsetters.

Spotted Cow Coffee Company is quietly nestled in the city of Mill Creek, just 25 minutes due north of the bustling coffee scene of Seattle. However, Spotted Cow isn’t doing anything quietly.SpottedCow_Selects (1 of 21)

Since open in 2003, the Spotted Cow has progressively been setting the tone for specialty coffee in smaller Western Washington cities often overshadowed by Seattle’s highly saturated market. In the midst of this coffee overload, they have found a unique voice offering high quality coffee in a warm and welcoming setting. This caught the eye of our team here at Seattle Coffee Gear, prompting us to bring them on as one of our earliest roasters available online and featured in store to be enjoyed on our tasting wall.

Leading up to their “Hello September Open House”, we invited head roaster Joshua Montoya to join us at our Bellevue location to showcase some of Spotted Cow’s delicious coffees in espresso and pour over form at our tasting. Sharing his wisdom on their roasting approach as well as notes to look for in their various offerings, Joshua and crew masterfully prepared their Ethiopian Gedeb as well as their flagship Farmhouse blend and answered questions from guests who came out to the pop-up. Notes of strawberry and sweet citrus shone through in their Gedeb, while Farmhouse showcased refined flavors of dark chocolate covered berries and stone fruit.SpottedCow_Selects (7 of 21)SpottedCow_Selects (15 of 21)SpottedCow_Selects (21 of 21)Join Spotted Cow Coffee Co this Saturday, September 9th, from 10am to 6pm at their cafe in Mill Creek, WA for their Hello September Open House!
