San Ramon residents will soon have the opportunity to break up the morning grind, with the recent announcement that the San Francisco-based Philz Coffee is set to open its newest location at City Center Bishop Ranch.
Set to open later this year, at Philz Coffee customers order directly from a barista, who grind the beans for each cup and customize it to their preference.
“At Philz Coffee, our mission is to better people’s days through warmth and connection, one cup at a time,” Philz Coffee CEO Jacob Jaber said in a statement. “We do coffee differently, and we’re excited to introduce City Center Bishop Ranch and the entire Tri- Valley to our personalized coffees.”
The company offers more than 12 customized blends made from high-quality coffee beans sourced from around the world that company officials say can be mixed and matched with other ingredients in more than 12 million ways.
City Center officials added that Philz -- which has more than 50 locations in California, the Washington, DC Metro Area and most recently in Chicago -- is perhaps best known for being the originator of the Mint Mojito Iced Coffee, which is made with fresh mint, cream and sugar.
“There isn’t a resident in the Bay Area who hasn’t heard of Philz Coffee,” said Alexander Mehran Jr., president and CEO of Sunset Development Company, City Center’s owner and operator. “The quality speaks for itself.”
Philz Coffee will be located next to Pottery Barn Kids on the southeast corner of City Center Bishop Ranch, 6000 Bollinger Canyon Road in San Ramon.
