the best coffee I have had in the states- a must try

First of all, this is the best coffee and one of the best lattes I have had in the states. And its definitely top five coffee places Ive ever had(and I have been to italy,france and UK) They usually have a line, but you can thwart some of that by hitting up the cart out front of the building... read more

Our first cup of blue bottle coffee was wonderful. We had to stand in line for about 15 minutes but we did not mind all. I just had a cup of the drip coffee. It was full bodied and rich. No bitterness. Just a honest good brewed coffee.

Blue Bottle Coffee in the Ferry Building is well worth the wait! You will be wired for sound!!! Great cup of Java! The mocha is outstanding! Iced Coffee is great too! Either way, you can't go wrong. Grab a cup and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Ferry Building on a Saturday morning.

Great coffee (actual coffee not dirty brown water) They know what a flat white is and care about the coffee they make. Keep up the great coffee guys.

Yes, we seek out Blue Bottle. No, we are not big coffee nuts. Mostly because it's a consistently reliable, good cup of coffee! Good coffee is worth the effort - right?!

I wanted to buy some coffee to take home as gifts and had a couple of questions, but the woman at the counter simply couldn't be bothered, so I ended up just picking a bag at random and going on my way.

For the daily dose of caffeine, this is our recommendation at the Ferry Buiding Marketplace. The coffee is very good, capuccino or latte, americano or espresso. The staff is made of very dedicated baristas. Expect long lines.

When you see the lines at Blue Bottle you have to wonder what's the buzz. The coffee is high end, the service is great and everything is fresh and organic. The latte was smooth and different, in a good way. There are certain establishments in every city that are worth the trip each time you are in town, and the... More

Mmm very tasty Affogato they have. Line up is always very VERY long doesn't matter what time of the day you go. Worth the wait to get the Affogato.

Being in the coffee business, I had to see what all the buzz was about. Why was there a constant line at this tiny place in the ferry building? They are under construction and had barely any food offerings with a simple coffee menu. The staff was definitely top notch, coffee purists to the core. To me, they were the... More
