Giulietta Carrelli, the founder of the infinitely quirky ~TROUBLE COFFEE~ near Ocean Beach (which is celebrating its six-year anniversary) is opening a second location in Bayview on Monday April 1st. She didn’t have time to really talk, but mentioned a couple of new blends she’ll be serving: Dutz (coffee) and Honor (espresso). Hours will be Mon-Fri 7am-5pm. 1730 Yosemite Ave. at 3rd St.
There’s a new coffee kid in town, this time from Jason Paul (formerly of Coffee Bar in the Mission). His new location, called ~COFFEE CULTURES~, is set to open in the Financial District in early to mid-May. It will be the first spot in San Francisco with Counter Culture Coffee, a North Carolina roasting company. In addition to espresso and drip coffee, you’ll also find Straus yogurt with seasonal fruit and granola, banh mi sandwiches, salads, and oatmeal. They’re also installing a soft-serve frozen yogurt machine with two flavors (plus swirl, of course). Paul wants the space to have a well-defined aesthetic and has enlisted Chen Design Associates (the graphic design team behind Craftsman and Wolves) to make sure that the details of the space are well designed and beautifully executed. Good coffee plus good design? Fantastic. It will be open Mon-Fri 6am-6pm. 225 Bush St. at Montgomery, 415-788-7011.
