Wherever my work takes me, so does my coffee. And so today’s morning coffee edition is Blue Bottle Coffee Co.
During my time in San Francisco, and after much site seeing of The Paris of the West, I visited the most talked about coffee shop in town: Blue Bottle Coffee Co. Located on the pier of San Francisco Bay, Blue Bottle Coffee Co. is the most crowded coffee shop that I have ever come across (so far).
I knew it was popular, but I didn’t know it was That popular.
When I finally received my coffee, I couldn’t help but to notice that I was walking inside a bazaar (like the one you see in Turkey) but on a smaller scale–it actually reminded me of Kings Cross train station back in London. There was a cupcake stand; a olive oil stand; an Asian tea stand; and even a Barnes & Noble bookstore. And when I finally made my way out, I was welcomed by the sun’s warm embrace, not to mention the magnificent view of the San Francisco Oakland Bridge. Joining me on this adventure was San Francisco native Makala Paris with whom I had the pleasure of having my morning coffee with–I also featured her on my Spotlight Feature edition.
My coffee of choice would have to be their lattes. Although their Drip Coffee was quite bold in taste, the lattes are much sweeter–and they add their signature leaf coffee artwork on top.
Blue Bottle Coffee Co is located:
1 Ferry Bldg, San Francisco, CA 94111
