About This Coffee

We developed our darkest espresso for the launch of our first brick-and-mortar in our friend Loring’s garage in Hayes Valley. Years later, it remains the standard espresso in all of our cafes. Lower-toned and minimally bright, Hayes Valley Espresso pulls a straight shot with a voluptuous tawny crema and a somewhat dangerous-looking viscosity. Milk, in any quantity, adds romance to the coffee’s brooding aspects, bringing out the inherent chocolate and adding a smooth, rounded touch.

Notes
  • All of our blends (both the individual components and the blend itself) are tested weekly by our professional tasters to ensure quality and deliciousness.
  • For our whole bean coffee, 24 hours is the maximum time that could possibly pass between roasting our coffee in Oakland and shipping it to you. (It's usually even less.)
  • Cupping spoons and a practiced palate are the key instruments of our Quality Control team, who taste, evaluate, and refine our coffees every day.
  • Certified Organic by CCOF
