Espresso Tonic with Raspberries: And much more at Roy Street (owned and operated by Starbucks)

Did you know that there’s a one-of-a-kind concept store called Roy Street Coffee, which is fully owned and operated by Starbucks? You’ll find it at 700 Broadway Avenue East, in Seattle.

This coffeehouse always features unique experimental beverages. Right now you can get the “Sparkling Espresso Tonic with Raspberries”.

Roy Street also features the completely one-of-a-kind “Starbucks Phantom” espresso machine, which is a bottom filling espresso machine. It now has its own milk steam apparatus built in too:

You can use your Starbucks card to pay for purchases at Roy Street but there’s no way to redeem a reward there. It is the only Starbucks concept store like it in the United States. If you’re visiting Seattle, this is a must-visit stop!

    Did you like the tonic? I usually think sparkling espressos are just not… good.
