We have an odd but convivial coffee kiosk in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley. We opened the kiosk in our friend Loring’s garage in January of 2005. Linden Street at the time was a dead-end alleyway that smelled like pee, so there was a certain amount of head-scratching that winter. Now, thanks to our customers and a cadre of highly professional baristas, the alleyway is one of the unlikely urban pleasures in San Francisco.
We have a small menu of espresso drinks, drip coffee, our New Orleans-style iced coffee, and treats from the Blue Bottle Kitchen.
We offer beans to sell, delivered Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
We use Clover organic milk and organic sugar.
We serve our Hayes Valley Espresso on a three group La Marzocco Linea, and we grind and brew drip coffee individually on Beehouse drippers on a drip bar of our own design.
