Before I moved to San Francisco, I didn’t drink coffee at all. The few times I tried it, it was regular coffee with some milk and sugar and I didn’t like it… even with a TON of milk and sugar. So I would just order hot chocolate or tea whenever I went to a coffee shop.
However, since moving to San Francisco, I was one day coerced by Jess to try a latte/mocha over lunch one day, so I did… and it’s been downhill from there. I have a latte or a mocha about once a weekday now (so ~5x a week) and I love them. And I’ve tried a bunch of different things at different coffee places
– Vanilla Latte (was a limited addition thing, my first latte ever!)
– Mocha (what I order now)
– Peppermint Mocha (default order)
– Caramel Latte (and it was horrible here)
Ritual Roasters Coffee
– Caramel Latte
– Mocha (they use a nice, bitter chocolate but I didn’t like it in this drink. I prefer my lattes to be sweet.)
I have yet to try Blue Bottle Coffee, but it’s on my list. Any other places I should go to try coffee? I live in San Francisco, so anything in the Bay Area would be good to suggest.
