Tasting: Blue Bottle Coffee

Blue Bottle's freshly roasted organic coffee beans have many devoted fans, including Aida Mollenkamp

On a recent visit to San Francisco, I had to check out some FoodCrafters recommendations for myself. Several tempting spots featured on the show are located there—after all, it’s the home turf of host Aida Mollenkamp. In the premiere episode, Aida shares her “obsession” with Blue Bottle Coffee and walks us through the company’s unique artisanal microroasting process. I was eager to get my hands on a cup of this stuff…

Minimalist signage leads you to coffee heaven

Blue Bottle Coffee is an ideal first stop in the food-lovers paradise that is the Ferry Building. Walk in and follow the deep coffee aromas to a sign simply marked with a blue bottle.

On an unusually hot San Francisco day, Blue Bottle’s “New Orleans-style” iced coffee hit the spot. Lightly sweetened and topped with a splash of milk, it’s the most flavorful iced brew I’ve ever had. The coffee is rich and bold, so a little ice doesn’t do much to water it down. I thoroughly enjoyed sipping it while strolling through the bustling farmers’ market and gourmet food shops.

No big urn of drip coffee here! Every cup is freshly brewed

You can buy (or order) whole beans from Blue Bottle—just don’t ask the baristas to grind them for you. According to their detailed mission statement, every cup of Blue Bottle should be freshly ground.

I might already be hooked enough to splurge for that burr grinder.

Stay on top of the new FoodCrafters episodes or check out the FoodCrafters resource list to see if any of Aida’s food finds are in your neck of the woods.
