“unglaublicher Kaffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Der beste Kaffee in San Francisco. Und nicht nur dort. Perfekt zubereitet. Ein echtes Highlight. Dazu das Flair, das Service. Ein Muß. Selbst das Logo ist liebevoll gestaltet. Wurde auch Zeit, das jemand der elenden Nespresso Kapsel zeigt, wie guter Kaffee wirklich zu schmecken hat.

The best Coffee in the Bay Area. And not only there, I suppose. Perfectly brewed. A real highlight. Besides the wonderful flair, the competent service. A must. Even the logo is unique. Was just on time, that someone showed Nespresso how delicious coffee has to taste.

“Blue Bottle at Heath Ceramics”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Great coffee. They do drip coffee here and it is excellent; takes a little longer but it is worth it. The location is also great as it is in the building that houses the Heath Ceramics Company so you can drink your coffee and browse the premises watching them fire the objects and looking for a beautiful set of tableware.

“Not a Cafe! just coffee and long lines and snooty staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

I admit Blue Bottle Coffee is great. However, there is always a significant wait, and there is a just as good place up on Octavia a block away (in one of the containers) Plus, they won't give you a double expresso togo. It MUST be served in a ceramic cup to drink there. Even though I wanted to take one home to my husband 2 blocks away. These guys have a great product, but it has become a cult in SF and it just isn't worth the wait or the attitude.

“Outstanding coffee, perfect temperature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

I ordered a regular latte, and added a bit of the natural sugar provided on the side. This coffee was the perfect temperature and tasted amazing. There was a bit of a line, but it was well worth it. Crazy ordering coffee from a coffee shop designed in what looked like someone's garage.

“Good coffee but not worth the line up”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

The coffee is good, but where is the coffee bad in San Francisco? It's worth it if there's not a long line-up.
