I’m a coffee person. Coffee defines the experience. Coffee is the culture. Whole countries, cities and small towns are fueled by coffee. You get off a plane and you are lucky to have options, besides the chain locales.

Starbucks has become McDonald’s. Peets is Burger King. Dunkin Donuts is Dunkin Donuts. You are better off with hotel coffee.

It’s not hard to find the good stuff in SF. Here are my recommendations:

  1. Philz  Link
  2. Artis  Link
  3. Blue Bottle  Link
  4. Al Rayan Mountain – It’s a convenience store but they have great coffee Link
  5. Sightglass Link

Where is the world’s best coffee? Maybe Indian Coffee House Link
