“It's coffee.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

Stop in here about 7 AM on Friday. There were only a few people had me in line. Picked up a couple of half pounds of coffee's gifts since I heard so much about the coffee here. And I picked up a cup of drip coffee for $2.75. It wasn't that good. I would prefer Starbucks or Peet's. Theres a Peet's in the building here. For a really good cup of coffee or cappucino, try Caffe Treiste (near Washington Square)

“Best coffee in San Francisco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

I stumbled upon this place accidentally but glad I did. The last thing I want is a dripper coffee, although you can order dripper coffee at the Blue Bottle, they do make damn good latte.
While you there, you have to try their waffle, it's one of the best waffle - not too sweet, just right. Enjoy it with the beautiful scenery, what more can I say.

“Pour Over Phenom”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

I lined up for this coffee at the Ferry Marketplace and holy strong coffee was it good. I must be living under a rock or something because this pour over thing they got going on in SF is news to me. You gotta line up, then wait it out while your precious individual filter works away making some of the best coffee of your life. It just goes along with the chill vibe here, I can't imagine any other major city waiting so long for their coffee.

“Long lines, but good coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I honestly don't understand why there always seems to be a line of at least 30 people at this place. I've been here several times when the line happened to momentarily dissipate. The coffee is good. It is not appreciably better than many other places in the immediate vicinity, but it is good. Highly recommend it IF you can get in without much of a wait, but not worth waiting in a long line for.

“SF legendary coffee..!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

Was interested with their unique drip coffee and decided to give it a shot..

WOWW..!!! The coffee is so pure and their baristas are definitely skillful
As a plus, following SF's "green" way of life, they ensure they only use not only the best, but the most natural ingredients...
