the much anticipated coffee reviewKate Alfieri | February 23, 2010
I promised Connor, Heather, and Casey that I would rate the coffee I had while in SF since they already seem to have a food review going on.
1. The Blue Bottle Coffee Co. (5/5)
I went there twice at the Ferry Building – when I first arrived on Thursday and again on Saturday. Connor and Heather witnessed me wait in a really long line to get a cappuccino. Sooo worth it.
2. The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (4.5/5)
I went to the one on Market St. near the Westfield. Their French Roast was really strong and smokey, which is how French Roast should be.
3. Starbucks at the BPS meeting (4/5)
Fortunately they’ve been serving Starbucks coffee during the coffee breaks at the meeting – and you really can’t go wrong with free Starbucks. Unfortunately the lines are really long and they tend to run out. If you want a cup without waiting too long you have to skip the last talk before the coffee break and lurk around the people setting up the coffee to ensure you’re first in line.
4. Hotel Metropolis free coffee (0/5)
I know why it was free – it tasted like dirty, hot water.
