Independent Coffee In San Mateo!

I needed a indie Coffeehouse around work, but everything was owned or operated, or supplied by Starbucks in the area. Luckily there's Peninsula Coffee Roasting. While the name is kind of deceiving, as they do not roast coffee on site, they do get their coffee custom roasted and delivered fresh. Personally I was expecting the typical disaster I experience when I enter a modern independent coffee house, but was delighted when the girl behind the counter actually knew what an ounce was... Sometimes its the little things you know?

Ordered my standard 12oz. Double latte, the girl knew what to make, made it, and it tasted pretty good. This is a huge jump form the last dozen or so coffee shops I have visited in the last few months...

Met the owner and we shot the shit for a bit. Seemed like a pretty sharp guy, knew his stuff and had the fire only a real coffee house owner has. His ambitions are on the right track, and I can see this shop actually growing in the coming years.

Definitely worth a try if you're in the area. Hell its worth a try even if you're not in the area! Just happy to have my new "Third Place" on this side of my day.
