In the early 2000s, in Oakland, California, a slightly disaffected freelance musician and coffee lunatic, weary of the commercial coffee enterprise and stale, overly roasted beans, decided to open a roaster for people who were clamoring for the actual taste of fresh coffee. Using a minuscule six-pound batch roaster, he made a historic vow: “I will only sell coffee less than 48 hours out of the roaster to my guests, so they may enjoy coffee at peak flavor. I will only use the finest, most delicious, and responsibly sourced beans.” In honor of Kolshitsky’s heroics (the dude that supposedly helped saving Wien from the Turks back in 1683, you can read about him online), he named his business Blue Bottle Coffee and began another chapter in the history of coffee. Now, more than fifteen years later, and thanks to the enthusiastic support of many loyal guests, Blue Bottle Coffee has grown to a network of cafes across the U.S., Japan, and Korea. They’ve got more locations in the bay area (San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Palo Alto…)
