Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters Restaurant Review

: Bearing such a subtle street presence that it's easy to miss from outside, this pocket-size slot adorned with winsome pineapple-patterned wallpaper is the retail outpost of San Francisco-based Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters. As a Coffee Quality Institute-licensed Q-Grader and Q-trainer and founding member of the Barista Guild of America, co-owner Trish Rothgeb holds some of the loftiest credentials in global coffeedom. This plays out in the quality, sustainably grown beans from which hot and cold drinks are brewed behind an appropriately cream-colored counter via site-specific methods with an almost theatrical artistry and expertise that would be amusing anywhere but in coffee-hyperconscious San Francisco. Lattes are nearly museum-worthy. Pastries from Marla Bakery are on hand to keep the coffees company.
