Our baristas Chris Casassa and Jesse Gonzalez competed in the Big Western Regional Barista Competition last weekend and made us proud! A big thanks to everyone who made the trip to support us and to our baristas for bringing their fantastic skills to the event.
Chris is moving on to The National Barista Competition in Seattle on April 24th, so stay tuned for more Ritual news!

It has been almost nine years since Ritual opened on Valencia Street. We’ve spent the better part of a decade serving the most amazing coffees we can find, in a space that has come to feel like home. The time has come to improve upon what we have created. Very soon, our Valencia Street location will go under construction to become an even better version of what we are now.
Don’t worry! We’ll still be at 1026 Valencia during the remodel serving fantastic coffee and espresso. We’ll also have all sorts of special fun things going on during this transition period, so be sure to come by for some coffee and check it out!
