You’d like to work somewhere besides your couch, but you don’t actually want to see, talk to, or be breathed on by anybody. Head to Moonshot Coffee in White Center, a distraction-free espresso bar that doesn’t have a lot of seating, but is usually fairly empty. It’s only 15 minutes from downtown, and the lattes are excellent.
