I waited until I had been here several times before reviewing and now that I can now say this really is five star-worthy. I know a whole lot of individuals adore their lavender latte however their ROSE latte is my shake. The increased water that they use is yummy and gives the coffee a pure flavoring, no increased syrupy (is that a word?) Artificial flavorings here.
Great coffee spot near lake Merritt. Currently also serving food from Bacheesos next door!
1888 Coffee Station is a locally owned and operated walk-up cafe adjacent to Bacheesos. April 2, 2017 is their grand opening and it also happens to coincide with Oakland Running Festival. This place is strictly a walk-up and order to-go perfect for those short on time. The workers are friendly and quick to get you going with no fuss. Even samples of their brew of day are given without asking. Is that top notch CS or what? The beans are grown from their own plantation in Veracruz Mexico. Artisan pastries are from Firebrand (local bakery). Besides coffee they also have loose Persian and Arabic tea. I fell in love with their beans the moment I took a sip of my mint latte. And here's why? They don't used any artificial flavored syrup. My mint latte came with freshly chopped mint leaves that adds a (HELLO Albie) to my morning. Fantastic place to grab a drink and bite while you're out and about.
The breakfast sandwich was out of this world, perfect amount of cream in my coffee, great special on fresh beet juice! Their food is really good and would highly suggest this place, they deserve to stick around Oakland!
Excellent little coffee station! The quality is great, yet the prices are better than most coffee shops. The staff is not only super friendly, but also very knowledgeable about the coffee, espresso, and foods that they serve. They are happy to talk about it if you have any questions or ask for suggestions. Love this addition to the neighborhood!
