    Sextant recently switched to Neighbor Bakehouse pastries, which means (1) they have delicious and unique pastries and (2) they carry the best (blackberry pistachio) almond croissant you'll ever have.

    The Jostel Gandi is the drink to get. The Jostel Gandi is essentially a dirty chai but it's made with top notch ingredients. Don't forget to check out the seating in the back.

    Cool new place on Folsom with good coffee. Beautiful interiors and they let you bring your bike in. Nice outdoor seating area. Great for watching bikes on Folsom St in the morning.

    Justin, formerly of Front, is producing some spectacular roasts here. The maiden voyage is a blend of both washed and natural Ethiopian beans, yummy.

    They are super friendly and have a good selection of coffee and pastries. They also roast coffee on premises, have wifi and a fairly quiet atmosphere for some solo work during the week.

    The only thing I care about: strong coffee, outlets, good lighting, and space. It meets my expectations.

    Exposed brick! Plenty of space, reliable wifi, and great lattes. My go-to place for getting some weekend work/reading done

    The Jostel Gandi is a chai with a shot of espresso. It is delicious and will keep you caffeinated for a long time.

    Excellent espresso, friendly service and a gem for the area. The baked goods are great too - I recommend the donut!

    Chai espresso drink is too sweet; stick to the basics. A lovely place to get some work done; free wifi, skylights and a chill crowd

    I love their Kochere Ethiopian roast. I usually go for their mocha on ice. Great environment as well.

    Super good coffee, great people behind the counter. Got a ginger molasses cookie and it was super tasty!

    Great staff, delicious pour over, try the Colombian if they still have it when you come (nutty, coco, smooth, dynamic flavor profile).

    Jostel Gandi, exellent cold or hot! (hot==warm... be sure to ask them to make it extra hot)

    Sextant Coffee Roasters has opened up in SOMA bringing you free wifi, an outdoor patio and coffee beans from Ethiopia. If that's not appealing, go for the pastries instead. Read more

    Such a great space & baristas, but they don't offer outlets with the free wifi. It's tricky to spend time getting through off/online work. Dead battery before you're ready to leave :(

    A pretty negative first impression, I received a cappuccino that had cotton candy foam (no melted ice cream texture here) and bitter bitter espresso.
  • Tobias S.
    Great drip coffee, spacious and music that's quiet enough you can get some work done

    If undecided, just go with the standard House Drip. It's a notch above your typical at-the-ready hot coffee.

    I've given Sextant a few tries and it continues to let me down on the espresso side. It lacks the richness of other 3rd wave roasters in SF.

    The iced jostel gandi is an iced chai latte with a shot of espresso. It is delicious!

    If you're looking for more of a bolder dark taste, go with their Trinidad pour over

    Get the iced chai (comes with a shot of espresso inside) and stretch out in the back yard to enjoy.

    Grab a karita pour over. Or if it's hot out try their iced coffee; it's meticulously brewed via Japanese slow-drip.
