Cafe Virtuoso‘s mission is to provide the highest rated certified organic coffee. Located in Barrio Logan, San Diego, the coffee house sits right next to its roasting and wholesale facility. Cafe Virtuoso is San Diego’s only 100% certified organic specialty coffee roaster and was founded in 2008 by Laurie Britton. Its coffee house offers a wide selection of coffee blends and flavored coffee, along with taps pouring its signature cold brew and cold brew on nitro, plus San Luis Obispo’s Whalebird Kombucha. The new setup also includes a built-in pour over “filter bar” for brewing full Chemex and Kalita pots of freshly roasted coffee.
With pitfalls at every turn in the path, great coffee requires a meticulous and mindful guardian. The Cafe Virtuoso is tasked with the dubious honor of orchestrating an untarnished journey from bean selection and roasting, to equipment and training. The team thrives on this challenge and detest complacency!
Cafe Virtuoso has submitted many of its coffees to be reviewed by the independent Coffee Review organization (Coffee Review). All of the coffees tested have scored 90 or better. The company maintains the highest standards for coffee preparation and provide training to our wholesale partners so they can serve the absolute best-tasting coffee. These standards are based on those established by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA). Cafe Virtuoso is very proud to continue to be recognized for its product and service to the local San Diego community and surrounding areas.
