Genie in a Blue Bottle
Birthed in Oakland, California, Blue Bottle Coffee Co. has spawned something of a cult following since its artisanal, freshly-roasted beans hit the java scene in 2002. A favorite of caffeine connoisseurs who prefer a palate punching cup o’ joe to the whipped, frothed, and syrup-laden drinks popular at a certain mega-chain, Blue Bottle delivers quality coffee of “the finest organic, and pesticide-free, shade-grown beans.”
You can spot their Bay Area kiosks by the inevitably long line snaking around each individual drip-brew station. As Blue Bottle devotees, the ecofabulous editorial team can assure you that each cup is well worth the wait. Should you live far from a Blue Bottle purveyor, you can order your choice of single origin, espresso, and flavorful blends via the Official Website, or sign up for their subscription service to receive a medley of coffees on a weekly, monthly, or bi-monthly basis. We’re getting the shakes just thinking about the creamy, Ethiopian estate blend.
