There are over 800 different drive-thru coffee windows around Seattle. So what makes KJ’s, a seemingly random Pinehurst shack, special? For starters, their Caffé D'arte espresso is always perfectly stiff. The milk-to-coffee ratios are scientifically precise, whether we’re talking about a soy latte or a nitro with pistachio-spiked cold foam. And even though KJ’s possesses every Torani and Monin pump on Earth, nothing’s too sweet, rightfully letting the espresso shine. North Seattle can be a dead zone when it comes to coffee shops, so swing in here instead of resorting to the Starbucks inside of Safeway or the other Starbucks inside of the other Safeway.
