There are many coffee meccas in the world, and the Bay Area cements itself in that milieu with pride. Adam Goldberg, editor of Drift Magazine, says the innovative minds of the area coupled with the chilly fog created the “perfect backdrop” for lots of good coffee to be roasted here. This is the place where Mokhtar Alkhanshali put Yemeni coffee back on the market with his company Port of Mokha after a childhood in the Tenderloin. And Trish Rothgeb, co-owner of Berkeley’s Wrecking Ball Coffee, was the first to apply the framework of feminism’s “waves” to coffee.
Considering all of that, it’s only natural that outside of the purist’s black coffee and espressos, there’d be a bevy of singular coffee drinks in San Francisco. Cold brew and lattes are scattered through the city as high-minded and trend-setting coffee fans alike overlap in the pursuit of something delicious to drink. Here are 14 shops with lattes or cold brew that deserve a place in Bay Area coffee history.
