Seattle’s Coffee Culture May Never Return To The Way It Was

Graham is one of many cafe workers in the city whose role has significantly shifted due to COVID-19 measures, as shop owners and managers resort to serving limited takeout drinks and trying to maintain a social media presence, all at a social distance. Graham’s day-to-day now involves cooking breakfast sandwiches, serving to-go orders, and making the occasional delivery. Years in the food service industry have made him well-equipped to handle the changes, he says, though he realizes not every coffee shop may be able to adjust as Broadcast has.
