Phillip Ma, owner of multi-roaster cafe Ma'velous, poses for Sprudge.com 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.
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.
