Another great win for the Giants last night, I’m sure the whole city is going crazy! I so wish I were there to witness everything and feel the energy… but before I do anything, I would stop by the Blue Bottle Coffee first. That’s exactly what we did when we landed in San Francisco this July — straight to the Blue Bottle!
The Hayes Valley kiosk to be exact:
I always love their logo and the store signs, too.
Lots of different kinds of beans… I like their packaging, too. Each name is hand stamped and the logo might be hand stamped as well.
There is a Blue Bottle CafÃ© in Ferry Building now (well, I don’t know when they came here, but not when I lived there) so of course, we stopped by there as well…
and look what I found! An embroidery cafÃ© sign :) I thought it was so cute I had to take photos!
“Blue Bottle Customers Only, Please!” sign on the cafÃ© table, also embroidered. So sweet, right? I love it :)
And I still love my cup of Blue Bottle every morning here in NY. Life is good. Happy Friday!
We ordered 2 more bags of Blue Bottle coffee online the other day and they came today! I didn’t realize until I moved to NY that I had been spoiled in SF not just by mild weather, but by good coffee. It is so hard to find a place with good coffee here. Especially, if you have tasted Blue Bottle coffee, it gets harder to find the equal quality coffee. Some diner here serves the worst coffee. Oh, I’m not sure if this is an east coast thing, but at some cafes, they ask you if you want milk and sugar and they actually pour milk, add sugar and mix it for you before you pay for it. I don’t think any cafes would do that in SF… at least I haven’t been to one.
We lived 1 block away from the Blue Bottle kiosk in Hayes Valley and it was getting so popular that we had to be in line for 30 minutes+ every time to get one cup of coffee so we started buying beans instead and brewing it at home. They do a drip coffee, which is the best, but the beans are the same so it still tastes great at home! Yes, we are addicted.
