What: QED Coffee
Where: 1418 31st Ave S, Seattle, WA
Honeys Heart: Mexican Mocha & Fresh Ginger Chai
Last Sunday, my friend Matt opened his very own coffee shop, QED Coffee, in the Mt. Baker neighborhood of Seattle.
Matt has been roasting coffee for a few years now and the coffee shop means that QED finally has its own homebase.
Matt was a math major, hence the roaster and shop's name. As Matt explains it, "QED is a statement of completion used at the end of mathematical proofs. It signifies the conclusion of a specific intention- essentially saying ‘I have achieved what I set out to do and I am ready to share it with the world.’ That is exactly what QED Coffee is about. Through the art of roasting, we strive to showcase the best flavors a coffee has to offer, and we are ready to show it off, one cup at a time."
I'm no coffee expert so while I think Matt's coffee is awesome (particularly the cold brew), it was especially cool to hear neighbors stopping in for the first time and already raving about how good Matt's coffee is.
In addition to all the coffee shop basics, QED's specialties include a Mexican Mocha made with Ibarra mexican chocolate and a Fresh Ginger Chai, aka one of the best chais I've ever had.
QED also serves pastries from local bakeries including Mighty-O Donuts and Macrina Bakery (the parmesan rosemary ham biscuit- soooo good).
Congrats, Matt! I'm so proud of you and I can't wait to come back!
