Back To The Beginning With Blue Bottle's Old Oakland Cafe

Back To The Beginning With Blue Bottle's Old Oakland Cafe

founder James Freeman sold his first bag of coffee at the Old Oakland Farmer’s Market at Broadway and 9th. Freeman at the time was roasting his beans in a 183-square-foot potting shed and delivering them to his friends in a beat-down Peugeot wagon. Old Oakland was the first market in the Bay Area that would accept Freeman’s nascent roaster as a vendor. In July of 2017, a decade and a half later, Blue Bottle is the biggest name in specialty coffee with shops in America, Japan, and Europe, a thriving delivery service, and a line of coffee gear fine tuned to the company’s extremely high standards. But getting bigger doesn’t mean you still can’t come home. This summer sees Blue Bottle’s return to Old Oakland, across the street from the Old Oakland Farmer’s Market. It’s a return to the beginning, a back to where Blue Bottle first got its start.
