Beechers Handmade cheeses operates out of a super-premium storefront near the original Starbucks in Pike Place market. There, they’re able to lure in townies and tourists with samples placed within shuffling distance of the sidewalk.
The samples are delicious and varied, as are the cheeses they actually sell, both in the storefront and in select retailers throughout Seattle.
They also apparently have educational cooking/tasting classes and programs to get locals schooled on appreciating fine cheeses. There’s great wine, coffee, fruit and bread here, so why the heck not?
