ABOUT US

Forty years ago, a cup of coffee was nothing more than a caffeine delivery vehicle. It didn't really matter how it tasted, it just had to slap you awake in the morning or prop you up through a long afternoon. But in the last decade or so, things have changed. A lot. A few people scattered across the country discovered how amazing a cup of coffee can be when you source the beans directly from farmers you know. When you roast the beans yourself in such a way that nothing intrinsic to the coffee is removed. When you brew the coffee with down-to-the-second precision.

Ritual has been a pioneer in this delicious shift in coffee consciousness since we opened our doors on Valencia Street in 2005 and started what some call a coffee revolution in San Francisco. Our goal then--and our goal now--is to craft the very best cup of coffee available anywhere. Period. We've learned a lot over the years, but the care and attention we lavish on our process is unchanged, including tasting every coffee several times before it goes out to our coffee bars and into your cup.

We don't do all of this to make coffee more complicated. We do it because pretty much everybody who works here has had a moment where a really, really good cup of coffee changed their lives.

POSTED MARCH 23rd, 2017

We have a new, totally unique coffee bar that just opened this week in the Oxbow Public Market, adjacent to our super-bustling, now 9 year old coffee shop! This tiny coffee bar is a big deal for a few reasons:

1. We are prioritizing experience and connection over speed. As more and more 3rd wave cafes open and compete with each other, our goal is to stay ahead of the curve by experimenting with service style, and by showcasing our talented baristas. Robots are making coffee now, and ready-to-drink specialty coffee is available at your local grocer. But people don’t just go out of their way to visit Ritual for our coffee. It’s also our incredible staff.

2. We’re letting people choose the experience they’re in the mood for: leisurely and interactive, or the quickest great cup of coffee possible. Of course we want a leisurely tasting experience of the best coffees on great brew methods sometimes, But we also have days when we just want a cup as fast as it can happen, with little or no talking :)

3. We’re making way for customer connection without sacrificing quality. We’ve got the coffee part down! We’re totally confident in our ability to consistently deliver awesome coffee for every customer. Additionally, we’re using new technology available in brew methods, a HUGE help to keep quality up while we deliver on the interaction part. (A custom Synesso with volumetric settings, and a pair of Marco SP9s, which take care of water delivery for pourovers.)

Plus, the bar itself is a barista’s dream. Only one or two people will work there at a time, with everything right within arm’s reach, and no need to walk away from customers while making their drinks. So come visit already! We'll be thrilled to serve you.
