The hardest part of moving from SF to Eville was that The Mill would no longer be a block away and my morning ritual of coffee (sometimes toast) and walking Clem around the park would cease to exist.
And then it happened today....my worst nightmare... We ran out of coffee at the house. Oh no! There are some good coffee shops in Oakland but everything is a bike ride or car ride away EXCEPT Roast Coffee Co. as we just discovered. Roast Co. has been roasting in Emeryville since 2009 and mainly wholesales to restaurants and businesses, but is friendly enough that they will make you an espresso and sell you some beans if you happen to be in the neighborhood. Jeff helped us out by explaining the coffees they currently were offering and even invited us to come back at the beginning of the week when the roaster is going.
