Ritual Coffee Roasters
(707) 253-1190
Ritual Coffee Roasters provides fresh roasted beans, espresso drinks, pastries, and brewed coffee daily to Market visitors. The incredible quality of their coffee is attributed to the precise care Ritual takes with every step of the coffee process – from uncompromising selection of green coffee, to unflagging attention to roasting, from rigid freshness standards, to its strenuous barista training camp. Forty years ago, a cup of coffee was nothing more than a caffeine delivery vehicle. It didn’t really matter how it tasted (and often, it was very bad); it just had to slap you awake in the morning or prop you up through a long afternoon. But in the last decade, things have changed. A lot. Ritual has been a pioneer in this delicious shift in coffee consciousness since it opened it first doors in San Francisco in 2005 and started what some call a coffee revolution. Its goal then – and now – is to craft the very best cup of coffee available anywhere. Period.
