    One of the original speciality "third-wave" coffee roasters and shops in San Francisco, Ritual boasts a nonchalant attitude, delicious coffee / espresso drinks, and a selection of donuts and pastries.

    Great space to grab some solid coffee and get work done or have a sit down with friends. They play trendy music and have a central location to other decent Mission spots if that's what you're into 😎

    The original Valencia Street location is classic coffee shop cool, while the reclaimed-wood Napa stand helps fuel up sippers perusing the artisanal purveyors at the famous Oxbow Public Market. Read more

    Everything is perfect, the design, the coffee, the lovely baristas, & the merchandise selection. Mostly I love the espresso machines, because they pull legit shots of espresso & steam milk perfection

    A quiet cafe with classical music and wi-fi. Half the price of the hipster places nearby and the interior follows suite. However a great place to work and get stuff done. #win

    Big open, modern space. My mocha was lukewarm, but delicious. We went for the Ritual branded, mason jar sippy cup with cosy. 💙

    Now with a bike share pod across the street. Getting thru the Mission was never easier — and you don't have to worry about your bike being stolen when enjoying your morning Ritual!

    Aside from great coffee the redesign of the store is amazing. By far one of the coolest looking shops in SF, along with Four Barrel and Blue Bottle

    Good recommendations if you are lost what to order. Friendly staff. You can have a peaceful cup of coffee while sitting at the table on the sidewalk. And you can buy raw coffee to brew home.

    Excellent coffee, but the baristas are way-too-cool. Ignored usually, then looked put out when one asks for rec. I buy the coffee from local shops instead of braving the hipstas on Valencia.

    The Don Guayo beans from Guatemala were prepared as a cold brew on nitro. The cup has slightly more body feel than it does in mouth. Aroma and mouth of lemon leads to a body of potato and walnut.

    Hacienda Carmona beans (Guatemala) were prepared as today's cold brew. The roast just grazes a medium body, yielding more of emphasis on sweet tones of papaya and agave nectar. Cups soft in mouth.

    Gatchatha, a bean from Kenya, is fun to cup with its multiple levels of flavor. The mouth has characteristic punch with caramel and banana tones. The finish is dark with a touch of cinnamon.

    Yukro beans from Ethiopia drip with fermented pulp tones that soak the mouth and aroma of the cup. Pineapple & citrus flavors awaken in the mouth and fade to a sizzle with some acidity but low body.

    Excellent coffee, great meeting spot. Lots of space to chat. Amazingly, the baristas seem to be different every day. Don't forget they have multiple espressos to choose from!

    Although known for their coffee, they also serve a variety of fine teas! Tea menu isn't always on display; you may have to ask to see it. The osmanthus-elderflower is particularly lovely!

    Worse espressi (I tried two, just to give the place another chance) I have ever tried in my life! Sure they get the hearts etc perfectly down in the latte's foam but common... Also: no wifi!

    La Folie from Guatemala prepared as a cold brew has a faint dark chocolate bitterness in the light body of the cup. The cup is clean with a honeydew melon mouth.

    Aramo beans from Ethiopia were available as a cold brew on the nitro tap today. The mouth of the cup stands out with a bright, and fruit and herbal filled punch of peach and dill. Mid bod & hi aroma.

    Ok, all the hipsters like this place and the espressos aren't bad - but I can't get into it. Compared to Blue Bottle's roast, I always get a tinny, unpleasant metallic taste with Ritual.
