Additionally, the store also features a demonstration and event bar that will be used for regular coffee tastings, equipment showcases, how-to workshops and classes.
“When we first started the business online in 2005, our goal was simply to help people find the right equipment for their needs,” remarks Seattle Coffee Gear’s founder, Victor Gehlen. “Over the years, that has developed into a passion for helping people make coffee they love, regardless of the equipment involved. We have a fun and lighthearted approach to making coffee and are thrilled to continue sharing our knowledge and experience with the community in our second store.”
