- Blue Bottle Coffee
- Hayes Valley Espresso
We developed our darkest espresso for the launch of our first brick-and-mortar in our friend Loring’s garage in Hayes Valley. Years later, it remains the standard espresso in all of our cafes. Lower-toned and minimally bright, Hayes Valley Espresso pulls a straight shot with a voluptuous tawny crema and a somewhat dangerous-looking viscosity. Milk, in any quantity, adds romance to the coffee’s brooding aspects, bringing out the inherent chocolate and adding a smooth, rounded touch.
