CNN: 5 hottest new coffee spots in the U.S.

Slate Coffee Bar - Seattle, Washington (@slatecoffee)
What started as an Airstream trailer–based operation is now an honest-to-goodness coffee bar with a menu of drinks and the option of having the barista make the call for you. There’s a wide variety of precisely roasted beans here, but minimal add-ins: only whole milk or soy milk. Don’t look for the sugar or cream or chocolate macadamia nut syrup here because they don’t have any—it’s all about the coffee at Slate.
