Seattle Weekly – Best of Seattle Critics’ Picks

Got one of those pesky, over-your- shoulder-peeking bosses? Couple that with a penchant for logging onto eBay and bidding on pretty shoes or rare records, and you’re in quite a pickle. But fear not, the Online Coffee Company (1720 E. Olive Way, 328-3731; 1111 First, 381-1911; www.onlinecoffeeco.com) extends its warm, latte-bearing arms to you. A coffee or tea gets you 20 free minutes of Internet play, plenty of time to jump in just before cutthroat Kathy from Akron outbids you. And with two convenient locations, one downtown and one on Capitol Hill, chances are you’ll be able to sneak away in just under the time it’ll take your boss to notice that you’re gone. The Online Coffee Co. does perfectly what plenty of other places have merely tried to do: They make excellent Caffé Vita coffee, and they serve it up with style, smiles, and plenty of well-maintained PCs.
