Welcome to Ballard, Slate Coffee!

Shop Velouria

Slate Coffee Roasters recently opened their new brick and mortar location in Ballard on 6th Avenue just South of NW Market Street. A friend of mine in the coffee industry forwarded me this article about Slate back in late February, so I've been eager for them to open since reading about their Airstream trailer and competition winning baristas. 

The sign, the menu, the lovely and talented Chelsea, and the brewing of a truly memorable iced coffee.

 Slate is more like a very nicely lit bar than a coffee shop. I went in expecting to grab an iced coffee for myself, a latte for a friend, and keep moving along in my day. Instead I was invited to sit and peruse a menu with a glass of water and discuss what I would like to drink with Chelsea, who was an easy conversationalist and highly skilled at brewing coffee.
