Blue Bottle Coffee
Brooklyn, NY

Blue Bottle Coffee has grown to a small network of cafes, wholesale partners, an espresso cart, and some vintage German coffee roasters. They are still united by the simple purpose of getting great coffee to everyone who asks for it. Improbably and delightfully, there are hundreds of them now. They roast coffee on vintage gear, put it in compostable bags, and still get it to their customers within 48 hours. They roast great coffee on two coasts, make great drinks, clean up after themselves, bake cookies, type up invoices, get change at the bank, and say please and thank you.
