Topic: Roast with the Most in San Francisco (4 msgs / 67 lines)
1) From: Brian Zambrano
There is an interesting article in today's San Francisco Chronicle about our
local coffee scene.  It's definitely getting better.  In the article they
mention Four Barrel Coffee which, from what I read at other places, will
have two roasters and provide (free, I think) cuppings....pretty awesome.http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2008/05/14/FDH310J6RV.DTLEven though it's fairly easy to get a good cup around here, I still like
home roasting.  :>)
Enjoy!

"The pull date for Starbucks coffee beans is one year."
That's why I'm starting to homeroast, lol.

Yep, they'll have cuppings but it's such a shame that 4 barrel have 
no idea what they are doing.
Ok, that's a joke, they are good friends and I was even just there 
yesterday looking at the new public cupping table. The main space is 
not open , but the "local's secret" is that you can go to their back 
door and get espresso (pulled on a Mirage) and coffee. Their roasters 
are not up yet, and stumptown is doing the roasting for now. Highly 
recommended, plus... how cool is it to get your coffee in an alley?

I was just there also. Hard to find and pretty close to Ritual.  I think they have the La Marzocco Mistral.  There is actually an espresso machine called Espressione Mirage.
