The days of stale, sad office coffee are over thanks to Joyride Coffee. It distributes premium, freshly roasted coffee to offices in New York and the Bay Area, and it guarantees the coffee to cost less per cup than a Keurig pod. (Stumptown, Blue Bottle, and Four Barrel are just a few of the many impressive brands they stock.) The service provides seasonal coffee from every coffee-growing region of the world and for every palate (from light, floral coffees to dark, rich blends). And to top off all that good stuff, the company is also known for its cold-brew keg, which dispenses a smooth-tasting chilled coffee that contains twice the caffeine of a standard hot cup.
We were able to score a tasting in our SF office, and these guys proved to be true coffee connoisseurs. They energetically educated our office on rare coffee beans, unique roasting techniques, and the best brewing equipment out there. Let the delicious buzz begin.
