Allegro Coffee Roasters in the Gilman District in Berkeley, CA, holds a special place in company's hearts. It was their first venture; a place where they could showcase their love for roasting and brewing small batch, single-origin, and specialty coffees.
It joins a neighborhood with deep history. Known to punk rock fans as “Gilman,” located nearby at 924 Gilman Street is the Alternative Music Foundation, a venue for punk rock bands and a springboard for groups like Green Day, Operation Ivy, Rancid and The Offspring. As an homage, they named their house espresso roast 924 Espresso. Located within Whole Foods, Allegro Coffee Roasters provides a coffee experience that’s head and shoulders above what’s available in most grocery stores. It’s live coffee roasting, happening right before your eyes.
They offer coffee education, cuppings, and lots and lots of free smells. Come in for a noseful of exotic aromas and a cupful of incredible tastes. They’re dedicated to roasting and serving the most beautiful, delicious cup of coffee you’ve ever had.
