Graffeo Coffee Roasting Company

North Beach

by Jill

Graffeo's is a North Beach fixture that has kept roasting delicious coffee in the family since 1935, making it "one of North America's oldest artisan coffee roasters" (self-proclaimed). Graffeo's makes a strong, dark roast which differentiates it from the newer artisan coffee roasters such as Four Barrel whose coffee tends toward a more caramel finish. It's definitely a more European style roast - if you loved the coffee that you had on your trip to Italy last summer, you won't be disappointed. At their retail roastery location, you can purchase their fine coffee but be aware that they do not sell anything in ready-to-drink form.

Stop Highlights

  • Graffeo's is a great place to pick up a bag-o-beans for a true North Beach flavored gift or souvenir.

Know Before You Go: Although you can't purchase coffee drinks at the roastery, many of the establishments in North Beach serve Graffeo's coffee. Try Mario's Bohemian Cigar Store Cafe just on the other side of Washington Square park from the roastery.
