In downtown San Francisco, there is no shortage in coffee shops. Apart from some of the big names like Blue Bottle, there are also some smaller places. Today up for a visit: Coffee Culture.
Granted, I stopped by just after lunch time, so the place was very busy. Even asking for a pour-over, created some concern, since it takes time. At time of visit, two different coffees were available: one blend and one single origin:
Despite hectic in store, all components were rinsed and scale and timer was used. What started strong, didn’t continue all by the books. I guess it became a bit too busy, so the pour took very long and the barista also had to take care of other things – not ideal.
But the overall product was fine. Actually, it was a surprisingly light coffee, considering almost 5 minutes of brew time total. The single origin did have a nice, light acidity and a light peach note.
Coffee Culture San Francisco is worth a stop-over, especially if you want to branch out from established coffee giants a little bit. But make sure you come at a quieter time.
