Some Espresso Temescal from Blue Bottle Coffee, yummy.

Monday, July 3, 2006

I headed out today to go get some beans, the original plan was to head to Ritual and pick up some hairbender, I waited and waited and waited some more, still no bus, so I headed to Blue Bottle instead. I got an awesome gibraltar at Blue Bottle, but alas the beans were a no show, they were out. The sun was out, So I walked over to Ritual and got my hairbender, had another gibraltar for good luck (also very yummy). Ritual was packed out, even with 6 or so folks working like mad behind the bar, the line was still to the door most of the time, I don't know how these guys manage to handle the insane number of drinks they make, and keep them all top notch. And that folks, concludes the San Francisco coffee tour, with the sad closure of Cafe Organica, the coffee tour is down to 2 stops, sad but true. (The gibraltar appears to be named after the glass its served in, so technically, the drink to the left which I made at home is not a gibraltar, because its not the right glass)
