SAN FRANCISCO | Sightglass Coffee is a sibling-owned San Francisco based coffee company who source their beans ethically, direct from farmers, and practice small production methods at all steps of the coffee sourcing, roasting and brewing process to produce some of the best coffee in town.
Sightglass operate five cafes across San Francisco, but their SOMA flagship is where both the company headquarters and production roastery are located. For customers, the warehouse space acts not only an open coffee bar, which allows customers to see the roastery in action, but also as a space with daily activities. Customers are invited to observe training, roasting, production, and drink preparation as well as get involved by way of classes that are run on a regular basis.
Upstairs on the mezzanine floor is an affogato bar, where customers choose a single-origin espresso to pair with an artisanal ice-cream flavour developed by Portland’s Salt & Straw. Ice-cream flavours and single origin espresso offerings change with the seasons.
On the second floor there’s the training lab, and each Friday customers can taste coffees in the space. Needless to say, if you’re in the mood for a coffee in San Francisco and are looking for something more than the usual coffee experience, Sightglass’ SOMA location is definitely a place you should visit.
