I had a very constructive business trip to the San Francisco area last week. Met up with a fellow CG'er and taste tested our way from Santa Cruz to San Jose. While in SF, I tried the famous Blue Bottle kiosk on Linden St. in the alley! What a kick, and what a good ristretto macchiatto. (see Western forum, "Carmel/Monterey" and "Napa Sonoma" related posts).
