San Francisco Bay's Premier Coffee Roasters

espresso porn

I have a serious addiction to coffee. My preference is a rich sweet and complex shot of espresso. Most cafe's I've been to couldn't make a shot of decent tasting espresso to save their lives. But scattered throughout Northern California are a few jewels of cafes, and just as importantly there are fantastic coffee roasters who strive to bring us the freshest roast and tastiest coffee beans. I'm gathering up a list of my favorite cafes and roasters in Northern Californina.
