America's Best Coffee Bars

Slide 4 of 28

Blue Bottle; Oakland, CA

Now with 11 locations between the Bay Area and New York, Blue Bottle has become a household name in boutique coffee brands with small batches of organic beans roasted in vintage machines. Freshness is a mantra here—all beans not sold within 48 hours of roasting are put into service—as either drip or iced coffee. At the Webster Street facilities, baristas pull shots of single-origin coffees from an impressive La Marzocco Strada espresso machine, while pour-overs feature single-origin roasts and one blended coffee. Unique in-house sweets include such experiments as saffron snickerdoodles and savory shortbread with Parmesan and fennel. bluebottlecoffee.net
