“Perfectly Prepared Coffee”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

If you're a coffee aficionado this is the place for fine tasting coffee prepared in a very careful and conscientious method. Reminds me of how the professional baristas in Europe prepare coffee. They do a fine job here in creating a delectable and satisfying cup of coffee. Great way to begin, get through, or end the day!

“Wowzers”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

Outstandingly, delicious cup by cup hand prepared coffee served by proud, caring baristas. Beans roasted on site include fascinating combos and flavors. Wish I were here on a Tuesday for tasting extravaganza. Highly recommend Blue Bottle

“Coffee Connoisseurs Only”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

Blue Bottle in Oakland is the warehouse where the coffee is roasted and packaged with a small corner of the building used as a retail coffee shop, There are only 2 to 3 baristas that do a good job with the endless line of caffeine addicts anxious to get there fix. It might not be worth the wait if you cant tell the difference from instant coffee and carefully picked, roasted, fresh ground coffee, however if you want a delicious coffee this is the place.

“An embarrassment to the west coast”
Reviewed 13 February 2013

Cringe-worthily pretentious. Half-hour wait for a cup of espresso that's too acidic to drink. The drip coffee is OK, but the brew-each-cup-separately gimmick is completely worthless and just makes the coffee take forever. It would be just as good if they brewed a pot at a time. What a joke. Not only can't I stand this place, I also can't stand the people who go here and rave about it.
