Oh! Scarlet City in Oakland looks so awesome!
has been roasting coffee in West Oakland for the last few years. Powered by Jen St. Hilaire, a veteran of Espresso Vivace in Seattle and the long-since-departed Ecco Caffe , Scarlet City does classic northern Italian style espresso blends, and medium-roasted single origin coffees, all similar to what you might find from Schomer & Co . at the highly influential Vivace. The coffee’s good, but the cafe itself is among the Bay Area’s most notable for sheer audacity and range of influences. This, dear nerds, is a fully operational intergalactic science fiction cafe.
