Ritual Coffee Roasters
Located in the Mission District, the key to finding this coffeehouse is its signature red flag with a white outline of a tilted coffee cup and a white star above it. Through the doors are a wood bar, vases of flowers, dangling light bulbs, and artwork. Ritual serves coffee from places like Honduras, Colombia, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Africa, and Indonesia, with almost 90 percent coming direct from producers. Two espressos are offered: a seasonal blend and single-origin Sweet Tooth. Baristas swirl foam into leaves, hearts, and other designs. Baked goods and infused loose tea are also available.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
