Four Barrel Coffee, San Francisco

Four Barrel coffee on 375 Valencia St. is a caffeine haven!  Among the best coffee houses in the nation and on par with Blue Bottle Coffee also in SF and Stumptown roasters in Portland.

The espresso we sampled was the “friendo blendo” – it was perfectly crafted by their friendly barista.

Tasting notes … perfectly highlighted below.  Nuff said – this brew was top notch!

The large industrial but very artsy type space invites you to linger for conversation, fire up the laptop or just people watch (the Mission district is a magnet for attracting the interesting type).

Surprise – The dominance of Apple laptops 🙂

Yes – they do play old school vinyl here – a nice warm touch.

In house roasting of the beans …

… produces a beautiful aroma that emanate from these jars.

The pour over station for non espresso drinks.

Four Barrel has an online store.  Stop by if you are in the city or sample their wares through mail order.
