"Golden Gate" Blend at Coffee Bar San Francisco - Leave Your Heart at the Bottom of the Cup

"Mr. Espresso" Golden Gate Blend from Coffee Bar SF
Don't let the "hipster" vibe discourage you.  Coffee Bar San Francisco has really good coffee.

While the "per cup" price is not good for a budget, the coffee is actually quite superb.

I must confess that I'm a little "intimidated" by the coolness of the customers and baristas.

Which is why I sneaked in the other day, grabbed a bag of "Golden Gate" blend beans, paid at the register and quickly ran out the door.  It was the end of the day and a lot of the hipsters had already headed to their hipster bars for the evening.

Coffee Bar serves "Mr Espresso" which is probably one of the best kept secrets in the coffee world.  I'm not sure how much it's enjoyed outside of the Bay Area but it's selected and oak-wood roasted to perfection.

It's great to be a "hipster" in training in the privacy of my very own home.

Mugs up!

Signed, Sealed, Delivered with Weaver's White Label Kona Reserve Coffee!



I brewed up a pot of Weaver's Kona Reserve this morning, and as I took the very first sips, I thought about what I would tell you.

Well, for one thing, it's absolutely delicious.

However, at 25.95 for a half pound bag some might consider it expensive.

But, it's oh so worth it.  A special way to treat yourself on a Sunny Summer Sunday.  

It's also motivation to get you moving on Monday morning.  You'll be excited to go to work so you can  make money to buy more Weaver's White Label Kona Reserve.

Sometimes a coffee is so good that words escape me.

Would you be terribly upset if I just told you that it's excellent coffee? 

Trust me.  If there's one thing I know, it's good coffee.

Monday Morning Grind. Actually, Monday Morning Ground with Starbucks Sumatra



I recently celebrated another birthday and one of the promises I made to myself was do things differently.  Sometimes.  Just change it up and step outside of my comfort zone. 

So, when I caught this Starbucks Sumatra (ground) on sale at Target this past weekend, I decided that I should break from my "self-imposed rule" of only buying coffee in beans.  

It was clear from the shelf that Target sells a lot of this stuff and there was no reason to believe that it wouldn't be fresh.  

Besides, it's one of my favorite roasts and I know it's not going to stick around the pantry for long.  I went for it and I'm glad I did.

This might not seem like such a big deal to you but for somebody like me, who tends to be a bit on the "anal" side, I think it's a step in the right direction. 

An extra "perk," the bag came with a coupon for a Starbucks Reward
