We carry so many different coffees that it’s sometimes hard to keep track of them all. We feel fortunate to have access to many great roasters right here, but we also source from outside of the Bay Area when we come across something that we can’t resist.
Our beverages are made with Clover milk, from Sonoma and Marin county family farms or Califia Farms’ super creamy and delicious almond milk. We use San Francisco’s TCHO Chocolate’s 68% drinking chocolate in our mochas and cocoas.
We get our teas from two remarkable tea companies. Our primary source is Smith Teamaker, a wonderfully small teaworks in Portland, OR where teamaker Steve Smith and his team craft the finest, freshest full leaf teas in very small batches. But we always find room to bring in an irresistible gem from Winnie Yu at Teance in Berkeley!
Our chai, which is making a reputation for itself in downtown Oakland and beyond, is from Tipu’s Chai in Ronan, MT. Tipu’s original chai was the founder’s maternal grandmother’s own recipe.
If you arrive hungry, it won’t take you long to discover that we offer some amazing locally made food. These treats are delivered fresh every morning from Starter Bakery, Hopkins Street Bakery, Salt & Honey Catering and Boogie Woogie Bagel Boy.
Our goal is to offer a curated selection of what we feel are the best coffees, teas and other goods out there, which means what you taste at Modern is what we love right now.
We look forward to sharing our passion with you.
