Love their coffee, wish I could say the same for employees.
I love their coffee and and was really excited to finally visit their cafe... Unfortunately I was very disappointed. The barista on duty publicly reprimanded me for requesting a solo espresso to go... Hey, I understand if you're a purist - but I come from that place where 'The customer is always right!'.
Coffee cognoscenti flock to this SoMa hotspot for painstakingly prepared brews fresh from the venue's vaunted Japanese siphon bar.. In Short The first full-scale outpost from the eponymous Bay Area roaster, this Mint Plaza cafe beckons patrons to sit and sip amid loft-like, industrial interiors soberly outfitted in stark white, dark wood and stainless steel. While many come for the espresso drinks famously topped-off with artistically swirled foam, more head here to experience the siphon bar's theatrics. The only halogen-powered model in the nation, the contraption uses water vapor pressure to brew fresh grounds in pairs of glass globes. A small menu of French-accented bistro fare is available.
