Caffeine Dreams: Haute 5 Coffee Houses in San Francisco

Blue Bottle Coffee Co.

Blue Bottle Coffee Co. takes a straightforward approach to getting you the best cup of coffee you’ve ever had. They use organic, pesticide-free, shade-grown beans and make coffee for people who actually like the taste of coffee without sugar-free vanilla syrup or caramel and chocolate jimmies. With freshly roasted beans (less than 48 hours from roaster to cup), a stark lab-like setting, and a simple menu with items like toast with butter and jam or poached eggs, the Mint location has become a favorite for those wanting carefully crafted coffee, a light bite and a different, albeit caffeinated, perspective.

Blue Bottle Coffee Co. is located at 66 Mint St.,  415.495.3394
