Clover coffee brewers (SEA)

Does anyone know which two or three Starbucks stores in Seattle have a Clover coffee brewer? Do any other Seattle coffee shops have them? The only info I could find on them were for independent coffee shops in Portland. (Plese don't reply if you are going to bash Starbucks. I'm not a loyal customer, but am not looking to start a negative thread about the company, either.)

  1. This article shows a picture of a Clover at "the Queen Anne neighborhood Starbucks". They also mention that Zoka is continuing to use Clovers.

    1. Trabant, in the U District. I'm not sure if their Pioneer Square location has one.

        the pioneer square trabant hs the clover

      2. we were walking around "downtown" magnolia the other day, and saw an indie coffee shop that had it - there was a big "Clover" here sign in front.

        I think Stumptown's also have them (Capitol Hill, among others), but am not positive.

          Stumptown has been quite vocal that they will not use Clover anymore because they don't want to have Starbucks as a supplier. They might not have gotten rid of their Clovers yet, but they probably will soon.

            I didn't see a clover in Stumptown this weekend. Heck, for that matter, I don't remember seeing one in there before this weekend either.

            The new coffee shop in Ballard, down the street from Java Bean... Aster, I think? They have a Clover too, or did when they opened.

            And Trabant isn't getting rid of their Clover, at least acc'd to the barista in the U-dist...

        2. Cafe Vita on Capitol Hill had a Clover last time I was there - about a month ago.

          1. Sbux was also testing them at their 6th & Union store downtown...assuming it's still there.
