Blue Bottle Coffee was first opened in Oakland, California by founder James Freeman, seeking to provide a coffee experience for customers who value the taste of freshly brewed, high quality coffee over the trend of flavored lattes, macchiatos, and other coffee derivations. Freeman established the company based on the principle of quality beans and fresh coffee over all else, and has continued this commitment to top quality despite the companies growth. More from the company:
"Blue Bottle Coffee has grown to a small network of cafes, wholesale partners, an espresso cart, and some vintage German coffee roasters. We are still united by the simple purpose of getting great coffee to everyone who asks for it. Improbably and delightfully, there are hundreds of us now. We roast coffee on vintage gear, put it in compostable bags, and still get it to our customers within 48 hours. We roast great coffee on two coasts, make great drinks, clean up after ourselves, bake cookies, type up invoices, get change at the bank, and say please and thank you. We offer the elderly and pregnant our seats on the bus and brush and floss daily. We look forward to seeing you soon."
