Anchored at the helm of the Embarcadero, with its storefront facing squarely down the length of Market Street and its back to the Port of San Francisco, our Tasting Room is the site of many guests’ first experiences with Blue Bottle Coffee.
We offer flights of single origin coffees for guests to compare, discuss, and simply enjoy. Each flight is prepared using an AeroPress (a peculiar device created just 38 miles from our Oakland roastery), which yields a focused yet nuanced cup. Our espresso drinks, pour overs, and pastries are, of course, also available for the casual adventurer.
The Tasting Room is located under the eaves on the exterior of the San Francisco Ferry Building, just outside our Ferry Building cafe. A launching point for exploration and discovery, we think this cafe is the ideal place for enjoying a cup of coffee, watching the Muni buses go by, and planning your next excursion. There’s heated seating, too, to offset the chilly Bay breeze.
