The Best Coffee | San Francisco

While in San Francisco, there’s one thing I noticed that everyone has a passion about. The coffee. There isn’t a huge coffee culture in the UK, sure people drink it, but there isn’t that passion behind finding where the best coffee is so I found it interesting listening to people talking about their coffee so passionately here.

There was this one place in San Fran that we heard was hands down The Best Coffee In Town – I think that deserves capitals as it’s such a bold statement! Hearing that, we just had to try it. I’m not the biggest coffee drinker in the world so I’m still at that stage where I can’t tell the difference between good coffee and really good coffee, but I still wanted to taste it.

It’s called Sightglass Coffee and provides the coffee for all the major businesses in the ‘Startup’ district including Twitter. Well, it must be good!

The place has an industrial feel to it with hundreds of sacks of coffee beans waiting to be ground in the huge machinery that’s dotted around. It has an understated and fuss-free decor, relying simply on The Best Coffee In Town – and the word has definitely got out. The place was packed with workers on their lunch break grabbing their trusty coffee. 

I ordered the recommended Macchiato. It’s an expresso with a small amount of milk (I went for almond milk) and it tasted incredible. It puts my Nespresso machine to shame (sorry Nespresso Machine!). I think from now on I may become a bit of a coffee snob after tasting that Macchiato!

If you find yourself in San Francisco searching for The Best Coffee In Town you can find Sightglass in the SoMa District (South of Market) on 7th Street. It’s a bit of a strange area to go if you’re just visiting San Francisco with not a lot of sightseeing to do but it’s a startup district where many of the now huge companies started out including Twitter, Airbnb, and Pinterest so it’s interesting walking around looking at the buildings! And if after the coffee you feel a little peckish, walk to Source, a vegan Mexican restaurant about 15 minutes away. I recommend the Dosadillas!
