I walked half way across town to find this coffeehouse/roastery and was not disappointed.
My coffee was a double shot espresso and a soy, sorry, almond milk flat white. A short aside, as seems to be the growing trend in SF and maybe other places in the US, this establishment does not... Read more
As others have said FBC is in a great location with a few cool shops in the neighbourhood.
The coffee is great, the fitout fantastic and the vibe is very cool. Located within an old building complete with exposed beams and a rustic feel, the roasting happens within eyesight of the... Read more
1 Short Macchiato
The best coffee i had in San Fran. If I was in San Fran for any longer i would've tried to move in.
1 Espresso, 1 Cappuccino, 2 Short Macchiatos
I'm afraid this place was quite a let down. Arrogant staff caught up in their own self importance with 'groupie' clientele.
Coffee was just above average (1x Cap, 1 x Mac), no tea, no food.
The gentleman working the pourover bar seemed to be better than his... Read more
Strong, bitter espresso with a fierce pick-up the moment you breathe it in. The place has an excellent vibe. No wifi encourages you to go with a book, or attend with a friend. Great pastries on offer, too.
1 Long Macchiato

1 Espresso, 1 Long Black, 1 Pour Over
Dropped in while passing through SF. Impressive fit out and loved the seats out in the street where we sat and drank coffee while watching the world go by. Coffee had a nice upfront taste but thought it had a lack of depth beyond that, lil dissapointed, also still grates that they refuse to use... Read more
One boar head is missing as is one of the Kies machines, but they have a Strada on the 2'nd line. This place is hopping with customers lined 10-20 deep most all day long. The machines are well used and the barista's are all very well trained.
There is no skim milk or 2% here. ... Read more

Loved this experience! The coffee was beautiful.
Bespoke coffee, handcrafted for each enthusiast.
Absolutely amazing espresso and the atmosphere is great.
Check out the pastries if you're feeling decadent, but leave the MacBook at home as this is not a wifi hangout. It's genuinely retro, so they spin vinyl and encourage people to... Read more
The coffee itself is always good. For being a relatively young roaster, their consistency of roast is pretty awesome. Staff up front are generally friendly. Drinks are pretty inconsitent. I wish they would tighten up technique and extraction up front so they would have better drinks.
Pretty rad spot. There's nothing like drinking a quality espresso while sitting at the back wooden bar watching them roast. Cool atmosphere of heavy wood, coffee plants, art.
