You fellow fans of all things caffeinated will have some new options to get your buzz on, starting with the opening of a location of SoCal’s ~KLATCH COFFEE~ in SF’s Mission. Owner Mike Perry sources coffee from around the world, and their accolades include an award-winning espresso at the Golden Bean Awards (three years in a row!), and their cold brew won first place at America’s Best Cold Brew Competition. The space (designed by Retail Element Consulting) will feature white subway tile, white marble countertops, and rustic reclaimed wooden tables and chairs, with room for 28. Café fare and local baked goods will also be available. The 25-year-old roastery (well, this fall!) will be opening a second SF location as well. 2567 Mission St. at 22nd St.

Local roaster and café honcho John Quintos (the recently opened Café Lambretta, Cento, Vega) is going to be opening ~CENTO COFFEE, INC.~, in the former Fora Think Space in North Beach. Hoodline reports he’s partnering with Alex Roberts (a partner in Oakland’s Roast Co.), and will be opening a café in addition to offering a retail component for nearby businesses. (Quintos is quoted: “Our focus will be to provide direct service and maintenance to small office kitchenettes and managers.”) Look for an opening in May. 150 Broadway at Battery.
