Home of the Velvet Foam!
It all began in 1895 when a local dock worker named Oscar Delaloyes brought imported coffee beans home to roast. The rich aroma captivated his neighbors and spawned a door-to-door coffee business. Eventually Oscar's horse-drawn carriage venture grew into a company he called Seattle Tea & Coffee. Oscar set up shop in Seattle's historic Pike Place Market.
Then, in the early 1980's, at the bottom of Seattle’s swanky Queen Anne Hill, a small coffee shop — Uptown Espresso — was attracting an avid following of discerning coffee drinkers. Uptown’s customers discovered a remarkable experience made possible by expert baristas, a proprietary coffee roast, a cool atmosphere and something called Velvet Foam. This is what we live for today.
