The best espresso in San Francisco

chipman | Aug 22, 2009 04:48 PM

There are a handful of really good espresso joints in S.F. Blue Bottle, Ritual, and Four Barrel naturally head the list. But there is a new player in town that has leap frogged everyone to the head of the class. I would like to say Sightglass at 270 7th. St. has a comfortable seating arrangement, great food, and everything else one would want. Right now Sightglass is nothing more than an open garage and a pre- construction space where the cafe will be.

They are armed with only a prototype espresso machine called 'The Slayer' (love the name) and coffee beans from Verve in Santa Cruz. For those of you who don't get straight espresso, get on down to this Kiosk and be prepared to be blown away. The taste of the espresso is almost like syrup with an after taste that went on for a good half hour.
