At least that's how Seattle's newest coffee shop appears during it's invitation only roll-out.
At the Pike Place Market, Storyville Coffee Company is brewing intrigue at what is described a new coffee experience.
"We don't think Seattle needs another coffee shop," said Storyville Co-President Jamie Munson. "It needs a new coffee experience and we're here to build the dream, the ultimate coffee experience."
Any reporter worth their salt would ask about the previous experience of the owner, and wonder about the great expense put into the buildout of the poshest cafe the city has ever seen, and question the money poured into the initial promotion—including the Teslas and bike-riders in the video above, not to mention the weeks of freebies during the roll-out. Google Jamie Munson, and you will find the that he was very high up in the Mars Hill Church hierarchy until 2011. It's easy to find that the rest of the owners of Storyville have Mars Hill connections, too. (Ronald Holden at Eater Seattle made note of the connection in a post dated the same day as the breathless "it's so cool" report above).
