There's a new coffee place at
2128 Folsom St. (between 17th and 18th streets)
...and it's a Blue Bottle Contender (but without the 20 minute wait!) The beans come from a roaster on Guerrero St., De La Paz Coffee, and the baristas have been trained by the Blue Bottle guys themselves. I had a perfect capuccino there today, superbly fresh and exactly the right temperature. Check it out! Free WiFi there too. They make some food, but I haven't tried any yet. It's mostly sandwiches on Acme bread that seem ready for a panini press. More on that soon.
