Snowbird Coffee, San Francisco

June 25, 2015

I am no coffee connoisseur, but being the boyfriend of one has introduced me to the culture of daily caffeine runs, hipsters, countless Macbooks, and judgement based on the quality wifi and number of outlets. Rather than deciding among the fifty different roasts, I take the time to admire the store they set up, the handmade signage, and better yet, the packaging. Along with up and coming juice spots, I think that coffee shops have some of the best branding in the city. (Shout out to all their designers!)

Snowbird Coffee is a cozy cafe on 9th off the bustling Irving street. Everything about them is made with a personal touch through real hand-done work, a craft that has been shadowed by the development of digital arts. The storefront sports hand-painted signs, gold window lettering, and hand constructed fixtures. Their bottles and bag packaging have clean color blocking and hand drawn details that create an attractive and almost vintage feel. Well made products can draw the customer to buy the item just for the design and are made to last after its intended duty. After finishing your coffee, throw your flowers in a clean cold brew bottle, or use the bean bag as a plant pot. Someone used their hands to create something beautiful, it’s only right to pay it back by repurposing their work after use. Don’t just toss it!
