Curbside Coffee Cart Lands a Spot Downtown
Five months after debuting at Off the Grid, mobile java vendor Curbside Coffee has a permanent spot Downtown. In Rincon Hill, actually, that place where the Financial District merges with SOMA. The Rincon Hill blog broke the news today that Curbside has a stretch of dedicated curb space at Folsom and Spear streets, near insanely popular Los Compadres taco truck, weekdays from 7:30 a.m. till about 2 p.m.

Jordan Greene, Curbside's owner (with Phil Nguyen), was a one-time corporate guy for Peet's. Greene and Nguyen use beans from San Rafael roaster Weaver's, begun by Peet's prodigy John Weaver; though Curbside's specialty is cà phê sua da, Vietnamese iced coffee. The Weaver's roasting style wouldn't necessarily fly in the Third Wave Mission, but Curbside should find a faithful fan base Downtown. Congratulations, guys.
