This San Francisco Institution is named after Central Europe’s first coffee house “The Blue Bottle” in Vienna. It helped pioneer the new coffee era of small-batch artisan Microroasting. Serving espresso drinks, drip coffee, French Press along side a nice array of cakes, and biscotti, Blue bottle deserves its reputation. While it has opened many locations, Blue Bottle seems to be staying true to its roots- serving organic Dairy and remaking coffees; we saw the barista remaking a couple of lattes that had gotten cold as the customer had wandered away and left them on the counter too long.
We visited the Blue Bottle in the excellent Ferry Terminal- home to many excellent local, artisanal restaurants and shops. Aside from their fare, they also offer a very attractive array of coffee accouterments from french presses and packaged foods to espresso makers.
