Tully's House Blend
There once was a coffee roaster in San Francisco by the name of Spinelli. Spinelli Coffee had shops throughout the city and it was known for being one of the best artisan roasters in the Bay Area. Not only did they have good coffee, their shops had a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Spinelli didn't have a big chain feel. It felt like home. Then in the '90s, Spinelli was purchased by a coffee roaster out of Seattle by the name of Tully's. People were wary of this "Tully's Coffee." They moaned and groaned and feared they would never be able to enjoy great coffee in a great atmosphere again.
But then a funny thing happened. Tully's took over Spinelli and it was all good. Not only did Tully's offer the same great coffee that people loved, the atmosphere stayed pretty much the same. Tully's doesn't rush you out the door like some "other big name coffee houses" and their baristas are like old friends. I love to go to the Tully's in Embarcadero Two and sip and knit with colleagues.
If you're not lucky enough to live near Tully's, fret not, while you won't be able to enjoy the comfort of their coffee houses, you can still enjoy Tully's great coffee in the comfort of your own home. Order online or find a grocer near you at:
(Tully's House Blend is a wonderful medium roast coffee. Not too weak. Not too strong. Just right. This bag was "on the house" - pun intended)
