Blue Bottle



It's opening weekend for the new Blue Bottle cafe location! It's on the corner of Mint and Jessie (near 5th and Mission) and looks killer. I took my first trip over there yesterday to soak it all in...syphon bar, GB5, pour-over drip bar, cold brew "Japanese style" toddy, La San Marco lever, and little pieces of salty caramel with your coffee. This place is really sexy and was crazy packed! James took care of us and made sure we had a good experience, feeding us shots from the lever machine while we waited for our Syphon. The coolest part for me was waiting in line; I got to eavesdrop on two people chatting about the Clover and other brewing methods in front of us. They're also customers of ours and it was so dope to hear people that weren't baristas totally geeking out on coffee...well, coffee brewing methods. But if Clovers and Halogen bars can grab some initial attention that's all good; it's then the baristas job to direct the focus back to the coffee itself. This is the kind of specialty coffee buzz that the Bay Area has been lacking for a while and it's sweet to know that people truly appreciate what we're doing with and for coffee. Cheers to coffee.

Decision, decisions. It must have been tough for you to make up your mind. :-)

we happened to hit opening weekend as well - insane crowds - i think we waited over an hour - but despite the wait the coffee was superb and the staff somehow kept smiling.

are the wait times manageable now?

had a cool experience meeting tadesse of black gold star last month - and he had also just been in to blue bottle and was thrilled to have the oromio coffee via vacuum - cheers m.
