Notes
Ignore their off-putting name for a moment. They are one of the most trusted Bay Area espresso institutions for machines and beans. Owner, Carlo Di Ruocco, inherited his coffee roasting tradition from Salerno, Italy when he founded this business in 1978. They are famous for their oak wood roasts. They also have extensive purchasing power and commonly buy up all they can when they come across a great lot of a bean varietal.
