Hands down, probably the best coffee you'll ever have!

This little Organic gem is just off the main strip next to the police station. The owner roasts everyday! The coffee is made with love... You won't find a bunch of different machines. Watching them make your coffee is like watching coffee chemist at the highest level perfecting their craft in every... read more

Decent espresso but the staff were having a logistics dispute that they didn't hide when I entered and the barista didn't know how to foam milk for a dry cap.

We loved the coffee at this little out of the way coffee shop. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the barista adds new thoughts and poetry to the walls every day, keeping the environment ever changing and very interesting!

We were told this was the locals favorite coffee house. We like supporting local establishments so looked forward to our visit. Four of us had coffee - hot and cold - and all were disappointed. It just seemed very watery and weak. Staff was nice but a long line formed behind us and with only one worker, it might have... More

After a long day of walking around and looking for some caffeine, I happen to spot this little coffee shop in Calistogo. I had no idea of what to expect, but got to taste an excellent coffee.. very cute place with a lot of funky things around, especially those crazy little scribblings on the wall throughout and also on the...

Had a perfect cup of pour over coffee, freshly ground. It's like an old fashioned coffee house. Nothing fancy and not much for decor, but just one hip guy there mixing up some great coffee. The desserts looked good, but I didn't try any.
