Founded in 2014 by Michael McCrory and Lauren Crabbe, this indie roaster brought high-end beans to the Outer Sunset. (Plus, the signature Snowy Plover, a fizzy, creamy concoction of espresso, sparkling water, and housemade whipped cream.) The original, 600-square-foot location opened on a caffeine-starved strip of Lawton Street—thus, the perpetual line snaking out the door. A second cafe arrived on Taraval in 2017, in addition to a roasting facility next door. Seating is scarce, but the Taraval location features a sunny patio out back for lounging. Single-origin beans are sourced from Ethiopia, Papua New Guinea, Rwanda, and Peru. The espresso is pulled on a Kees Van Der Westen machines, while pour over is made from St. Anthony Industries drippers. Don’t miss the baked goods, like blueberry corn muffins and candied blood orange and chocolate scones, all made on-site at the Lawton cafe.
