Stumptown Coffee Is Back In San Francisco

Phillip Ma, owner of multi-roaster cafe Ma’velous, poses for with a five pound bag of Hairbender. Ma’velous is serving Stumptown Coffee in San Francisco, marking the first such wholesale account in the Bay Area.¹

When we visited this afternoon, Phillip was pulling Hairbender and offering Decaf Colombia La Piramide in a number of slow brew methods. On the shelf, Ma’velous is selling fresh whole bean bags of Hairbender, Bolivia Buenavista, Organic Ecuador Loja and Ethiopia Leka Wato.

While visiting Ma’velous you can also enjoy coffees from Intelligentsia, Ecco Caffe, and starting this week, espresso and Hacienda La Esmeralda from Denmark’s Coffee Collective. Be sure to try the “Cherry”: a flight where a single coffee is made as an espresso, cappuccino and a slow-brew method. There’s also a menu item where you can try two different espressos back to back.

Check out sweet shots of Ma’velous’ custom built pimped out Espresso Parts 4-Group La Marzocco after the jump.

¹ This marks the first time a multi-roaster cafe has served Stumptown in San Francisco. For a spell, Stumptown was served at both Ritual and Four Barrel before the two companies began roasting. Stumptown Coffee has not been available in a cafe setting in the Bay Area since 2008.

    We are currently working things out with customs and will be getting more Wendelboe very shortly. Thank you for you patience! And thanks Tim for working with us!

    Actually, Stumptown was also available at Dynamo Donuts on 24th Street before Four Barrel started roasting your own. Be careful when you start making broad claims like that!

      Still makes it the first multi-roaster cafe in the city. You’re really something else today, Greg.

        Is this a gerrymandering contest?: “First among multi-roaster cafés”?

        Looking forward to posts on the first multi-roaster café with at least one satellite kiosk and a name that contains a “W” to carry Stumptown.

        Dynamo carried Hairbender longer than the others mentioned here. But feck accuracy when you can fake it, yo.

        Can I borrow your drool bucket?

        Mine’s in the shop and doesn’t have nearly the volume you’re sporting.
