  • San Diego CA- Bird Rock Roasters

    I stumbled upon this place, thankfully on my first day in SD.
    In the La Jolla area, it has a great laid-back vibe and is close to the beach.
    Roast magazine awarded them 'micro roaster of the year 2012'
    The Monkey Bite blend as a ristretto from the Synesso was bright and bold with lots of body.
    They had 4 SOs all offered as pour overs with a choice of Panama Geisha, a Yemem, a Sumatran, and a Kenyan with a choice of Chemex or Hario. They were all excellent, the Yemen was my favourite.
    They had a range of about 10 SOs to buy and all had roast dates less than 3 days old! This was perfect for me as my home roast supply was finishing up - picked up yirgacheffe and Guatemala El Injerto. They post beans as well.
    The staff are very friendly and they have some great art on show in their open space. Seemed to have a devout local following. I was amazed the Starbucks across the road still seemed to be thriving, but this is the USA!

    Highly recommended.
