At Last, a $20,000 Cup of Coffee – New York Times

Was just at the new Blue Bottle location yesterday, will def try the siphon thing when I stop by today. This location is great coz I now won’t have to go all the way to Hayes valley to get their Hayes Valley Espresso beans… I pull ristretto (with my triple bottleless PF) with those beans and it’s divine.

Actually it would be awesome if Starbucks start doing siphon, not gonna happen though. I haven’t seen a Starbucks location with a
La Marzocco machine for a long long time, the SA machines are taking over, sadly…

So far, the Clover is still something of a cult object, with just over 200 machines scattered around the world. But it might soon become a common sight: Starbucks has just bought two.
