The Perfect Cup of Coffee in San Francisco
Coffee in San Francisco
Where is the perfect cup of coffee in San Francisco? This is a tough question to answer. I've been to many coffeeshops in San Francisco and it's tough to nail down a favorite. Each one has its own vibe and I connect with many for various reasons. A few weeks back I tried out Four Barrel Coffee for the first time. Four Barrel has three locations total in the city, the one I went to is on Valencia street within the Mission district. Even from their website you can sense the personality in you'll find when you walk into this coffeeshop.
Coffee and Photoshop
Two of the best things, right? I've chosen a select few photos from this coffeeshop visit to share with you and show you. In this time-lapse video you'll see the photos from raw and unedited to the final photos you'll see below. The Perfect Cup is definitely another photography and video series in the works. I'll be sure to continue it with other San Francisco coffeeshops :) But for now, enjoy a cup of your own while you watch this short film.

And here are the photos you watched me edit right before your eyes.
Four Barrel Coffeeshop
Here are are a few other shots so you can get a better glimpse of the atmosphere of Four Barrel.
Beautifully engraved wooden signage adorns the inside of Four Barrel.
Plenty of original illustrations and a hand-crafted touch in the design elements of their signage and products.
There's a special (somewhat) covered section of outdoor seating if you prefer enjoying your coffee while watching the streets of San Francisco.
And my favorite shot from the lot. I love how the signage covers the anonymity of the two people, creating more of an abstract idea of interaction.
