Coffee & Tea Collective San Diego, CA
FOR BEAN AFICIONADOS
WRITTEN BY JAIMEE ROSE * PHOTOS BY JENNIFER YOUNG
When Coffee & Tea Collective opened its doors in San Diego’s North Park neighborhood, a joyous cry went up from the city: This is good coffee. Really good coffee, at last. Glory, hallelujah.
The beans are roasted in-house, and the coffee is served pour-over style in a room filled with white pegboard and Eames chairs.
Don’t forget to look up. The pendant lights are locally made and sold on site.
Also: may we recommend following Coffee & Tea Collective on Facebook? That way, you’ll know when the Wow Wow Waffles run out. Coffee and waffles are a combination that deserves a little more attention.

About those light fixtures
Husband-and-wife team Philip and Chelsea Hansen are the force behind San Diego’s coolly named Typewriter Boneyard. They make the beautiful Edison bulb light fixtures on display (and for sale) at Coffee & Tea Collective. We love the chandeliers and the hardback books retro-fitted with chic bulbs. Pendants are $85, book lights are $140, and chandeliers range from $450 to $3,100.
Love the coffee? Bags of those gorgeous roasted beans are for sale. Also, we haven’t even mentioned the tea. Try it. The Black Clove is a favorite of ours, rich with spice and hints of orange.
