This is terrific news for fans of delicious, wonderful coffee: Blue Bottle Coffee, the Bay Area-centered purveyor of amazingness, just pulled in $20 million and could expand to other cities soon.
Now, as the Wired story points out, Blue Bottle isn’t really Coffee Snob Coffee (nor is it really some kind of little-known hole-in-the-wall or something like that; I mean, it has a location in Rockefeller Center). But if there is a chance it will open up anywhere near me, that is a wonderful thing. (For me. You might not care as much. Or maybe you already live near a Blue Bottle and you’re wondering why it’s such a big deal. Or maybe you don’t drink coffee. Really, whatever makes you happy.)
