The build out was completed by all San Diego based vendors, including interior design once again by MY Studio ID, that designed the Torrey Pines Beach Bird Rock Coffee Roasters location.
The newly remodeled 1,100-square-foot cafe in Pacific Beach features an outdoor patio with the signature Bird Rock Coffee Roasters garage door window openings allowing the nearby sea breezes to flow through the entire cafe. The location offers specialty seasonal coffees sourced at origin by staff and utilizes the Slayer SteamX espresso machine and the Pour Steady pour-over system.
The café introduces Justin Gaspar and Sean Le, pastry chefs both trained at the International Culinary Center in Northern California. The pastry chefs are providing homemade breads, yogurt and granola, a toast menu, and other selected grab and go items. This is the first location in the company to have chefs on site with a developed food menu.
“We are growing rapidly throughout San Diego, expanding our coastal brand, and we are thrilled to be part of yet another outstanding community of merchants in Pacific Beach,” said Jeff Taylor, co-owner of Bird Rock Coffee Roasters.
“We are excited to launch our expanded food menu with our new chefs, and are proud that in the midst of planning for a major opening, we were honored recently with more than a dozen national coffee roasting awards. It is essential that as we grow we achieve our vision to provide San Diego with the world’s best coffee,” Taylor said.
Bird Rock Coffee Roasters was the first to introduce direct trade and origin-sourced coffees to the San Diego community and debuted their flagship location in San Diego in 2006 – directly across the street from a Starbucks.
Since then, the roaster has received numerous accolades for their coffee, including 16 roasting awards at the 2018 national Golden Bean competition, the national Good Food Awards in 2016 and 2017, best coffee in San Diego from multiple national and local outlets, and the national “Micro Roaster of the Year” award in 2012.
