Seattle Weekly's Description
You are in your early 20s, working as a barista. You may ask yourself, "How did I get here? Is this my beautiful life?" Zach Bolotin decided he could do better, and opened this business. Now he's not just a barista - he's the store's owner, with an eye toward doing coffee better than slam-packed competitors on the Hill. The minimalist space has a friendly vibe, serving beans sourced from Herkimer Coffee on Phinney Ridge. There is space to work (with free wi-fi) or socialize, and the primary drawing card of the place is Bolotin himself, the operation's cute, funny and outgoing frontman, barista and head dishwasher. Beyond the beans, Porchlight offers a small selection of coffee-friendly cookies and bites.
