The Coolest Coffeehouses in San Francisco

A place that employs artists to make your coffee beautiful; a place that brews a cup one very long drip at a time; a historic place that has poured 35 million cups so far; and my favorite place of, my recipe for Brown Sugar French Press Coffee.


Good quality medium grind coffee

Brown sugar

Heavy whipping cream


Place 3 heaping tablespoons medium ground coffee in the bottom of a French coffee press.  Fill it 3/4 full with boiling water.  Place top on (but don't plunge!).  Let sit 4 minutes to steep.  Meanwhile, whip about 1/3 cup heavy cream until very soft peaks form (don't add sugar).

Very slowly plunge coffee.  Place 1 tablespoon brown sugar in the bottom of each mug.  Pour coffee over and top with whipped cream.  Makes 2 - 3 servings.  Note:  A splash of Kahlua or whiskey is a nice addition.
