Coffee elites and aspiring connoisseurs, rejoice! If you've been searching for the best coffee that San Francisco has to offer, look no further than Four Barrel. The beans are roasted in-house, so if you want to see the roasting process in action just grab a seat at the back bar and watch them work their magic! Famous for its drip coffee, Four Barrel's coffee is brewed in an authentic and respectable manner. They even have a separate coffee bar near the entrance with a rotating selection of beans from around the globe!
Giving each cup the attention it deserves, you'll find that Four Barrel's baristas aren't perky (this isn't Philz, y'all) but they are friendly, efficient and consistent. The espresso is always smooth, indicating a carefully extracted espresso shot, and the latte art is well-executed. My drink is literally perfect. Every. Single. Time. The ambiance and decor are on point: an open, rustic feel that is the perfect setting to grab a cup of coffee with a friend, socialize with your coworkers or just people-watch. Located in The Mission with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating areas, it's easy to come often and stay awhile.
You'll dish out a premium for your drink here, no doubt, but you get what you pay for: high end coffee, fantastic service and a great ambiance to enjoy your cup of caffeinated bliss.
