Uptown Espresso was established in Seattle in 1984 at the bottom of historic and swanky Queen Anne Hill. A pioneer in the emerging Seattle coffee scene, Uptown soon built an avid following of discerning coffee drinkers who discovered a remarkable experience. An experience made possible by expert baristas, a proprietary coffee roast, hand-made bakery treats, a cool and comfortable atmosphere and something called Velvet Foam.
After Dow Lucurell’s passing last July 2018, Paul Odom — Fonté Coffee Roaster owner — acquired Uptown Espresso.
Today, with 6 locations throughout Seattle, Uptown Espresso continues a devotion that includes an attention to detail and commitment to quality.
