Eileen Hassi opened her flagship coffee shop, Ritual Coffee, on Valencia Street in 2005, starting what some have called a coffee revolution in San Francisco. She has more than lived up to the original goal of the shop, to craft the very best cup of coffee available anywhere. Period. Ritual batch brew, cold brew, pour-overs and espresso drinks are among the best in the world. Ritual selects and roasts their own beans, sells them wholesale, and operate cafes.
Like their other four locations in the Bay Area, Ritual are vibrant, community orientated environments that feel like a living room and harken back to the European-style cafes of the '30s and '40s.
