I really do try to patronize local merchants for everything I can. Please tell me, 'hounds, is Tully's local, or is it a corporate giant like 'Buck's? Any other SF-based coffee chains in the city? Is Peet's still independent or was it bought out?
Does anyone know an excellent independent coffee roaster in SF who sells Kona for less than its weight in gold?
Also, on another subject, does anyone know a source in SF for fresh chervil? I've begged about as much as I can from a neighbor who grows it, and have even tried rooting a cutting from her without success. While you're at it, if anyone knows of a fresh chicory source (I know -- very hard to find) I'd love to hear about it and would travel for it.
