Philz Coffee. The Best Coffee in the World.

by Sarah on November 12, 2010

I have tasted the nectar of the gods, thy name is Philz Coffee.

This is Phil Jaber, the creator of Philz.

The Philz story in a nutshell:  Phil ran a corner market at 24th and Folsom in San Francisco.  He began developing coffee blends for his own pleasure, and spent 20+ years perfecting his method.  He and his son Jacob converted the store into the coffee shop in 2003.

It just seemed so fussy.  Order from a giant chalkboard of coffee blends (The staff is helpful and will recommend something to you if you don’t have a pro with you), they make each cup separately–one cup at a time!–even mixing the cream and sugar according to your liking.

I’m going to be honest.  I’m ALWAYS honest with you, readers.  I was skeptical.  I’m not a coffee connosieur.  And frankly, how good can a coffee really be, anyway?

Seriously?  This was the best coffee I have ever tasted in my entire life. The sun came out, birds sang and danced around my head and a rainbow came through the window.  It was that good.

Phil, please come to Sacramento.  I can’t duplicate your loving ways.  And regular coffee just isn’t good anymore.

But you can damn well bet I’m going to try–I brought a pound of Jacob’s Wonderbar home with me!

P.S.  Coffee subscriptions are available.  And Christmas is coming.  Hint, hint.
