Blue Bottle coffee beans (or Ritual beans)

Does anyone know where I can find Blue Bottle whole coffee beans today near the Financial District or North Beach? Surely they must be sold at the Ferry Building but no luck yet.

  1. The blue bottle cafe on Mint street?

      I'd call first -- the last three times I've been to the Mint Street cafe, they've been out of beans for retail sale.

    2. I think WF (4th and Harrison) sells Ritual Beans. Did you check Village Market at the FB?

      1. Boulette's should have Blue Bottle at FB

        1. Best to check both their websties. Ritual especially seems to add and subtract retail accounts every few months. Blue Bottle should be easy to get, and the Hayes Valley location isn't insanely far if the Mint Plaza locale is dry of beans.

          1. It's probably too late for you, but if not, Boxed Foods carries bags of Blue Bottle beans. I think it's a little more expensive there, but it's convenient.

              Was at Bittersweet on Fillmore today and they had bagged Blue Bottle beans, just delivered. Not a lot though
