    Grettings! New Kid on the Block (Not the boy band)

    Hello all,

    I just wanted to take a moment to let everyone know I've enjoyed reading your post. I have been researching coffee for about 8 months now to prepare to open my own little slice of paradise. The topics that you ' all share are great, and thanks for not holding back information to help others.

    Anyway, part of my research as been to travel to other parts of the U.S. and different countries just to see what's going on out there. I will be going out to San Fran in Sept, so if anyone has any great spots that I should check out let me know.

    Thanks all,

    Fudda02

    From the response I'm getting it looks like the bay area is not what it's cracked up to be.

    Hey Barefoot,

    Thanks for the locations. So how far are you from the bay area? I would like to check your place out. I've also heard that Berkeley has some good spots as well.

    we are in the Bay Area. We are in the south bay. The Bay area is huge with like 6 million people. we are about 40 minutes straight south of San Francisco. here is an ascii map of the bay area:

    SF Oakland

    San Leandro

    Mt View

    Santa Clara San Jose

    so check out all those places. Also Gaylords in Oakland is decent sometimes. there are tons in SF,Oakland and Berkely but most are pretty 1st wave unpleasant bitter juice.
