Located at the North end of quirky shops and restaurants at the end of Abbott Kinney, Blue Bottle recently opened a charming storefront. With multiple locations in big cities such as the Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York and Toyko, it’s obvious that Blue Bottle Coffee has made an impression. They take a classic approach to roasting their coffee, using vintage gear and serving their responsibly sourced beans to customers within 48 hours of roasting to ensure they are at the peak of freshness.
If you’re looking to purchase some coffee brewing supplies for home, this is a great place to browse as well as to pick up some beans and learn the best practices of brewing from the many baristas behind the counter. Blue Bottle is also known for its pre-packaged coffee, and its grab-and-go design makes it an easy stop. It’s a no frills, no nonsense coffee shop that lives well up to its reputation.
