The first thing you might notice when stepping into Four Barrel Coffee is the absence of WIFI access and power strips. Judging from its minimalist industrial interior, it’s not too much of a stretch to realize that this absence is intentional.
Fostering classic cafe culture alongside exclusive hand roasted coffee has given Four Barrel Coffee the reigning status as home to one of San Francisco’s best cups of joe. Yet there’s very little cafe fetishism or attitude here; a team of adroit baristas unfussily deliver well roasted and finely crafted espresso, cappuccino and latte in no time flat. The coffee itself is notably sourced by their “direct-trade” relationships with local growers and farmers across the world, but it’s the quality of their roast that really counts in the end, so be sure to sample the caffeine buzz that everyone’s been, well, buzzing about.
