“I bought a small old fashion coffee roaster and I plan to roast my own coffee. Front Street will never smell the same!”
– Jim Stewart 1969

Jim and Dave Stewart, coffee pioneers and founders of Seattle’s Best Coffee, opened their first shop here in 1969. They initially called their business the Wet Whisker. The business became known as Seattle’s Best Coffee in 1991 when Jim and Dave won a contest for the best coffee in Seattle.
