My good friend Ags pointed me to what must be, based on name alone, a wonderful thing: Coffee Week at Verité Coffee. As in, free coffee. Buy a $20 drink card before September 15 and get a free drink, or buy a mug or tumbler and get a free fill-up. Verité is located in Ballard (next to the Majestic Bay theater), Madrona, and in West Seattle. They use Caffe Umbria beans, which are especially good.
