Andytown Coffee Roasters was founded in 2014 by Michael McCrory and Lauren Crabbe to bring specialty coffee roasting to the Outer Sunset in San Francisco. Our goal is to make specialty coffee a welcoming, comfortable, and extraordinary experience.
We spent over a year designing and building Andytown to create a functional, intentional space for flawless customer experiences. We wanted Andytown to feel like your grandmother's kitchen—clean, cozy, welcoming, and warm. We also needed Andytown to work—our roasting, baking, and customer service all take place in our 600 square foot space.
Since our first day of business on March 22, 2014, we have grown from a local corner shop in the middle of the Avenues to a San Francisco destination. Before we opened, we expected to be slow—we are, after all, in a neighborhood that is often dismissed as boring. We didn’t hire any help. The plan was for the two of us to do everything. We were to come in early and bake, work the barista area during the day, and roast as needed throughout the week. Imagine our surprise when on our opening day, we had a line out the door and down the block!
As we grow, we are building a team of experienced coffee and pastry professionals who work hard and continuously challenge us to improve. We firmly believe that all workers deserve to live well. We offer all employees premium health care, paid time off, and opportunity for growth. In exchange, our employees make our coffee and pastries as delicious as possible and serve our customers with pride.
With our coffee, pastries, and customer service, we have created an experience that people are willing to go out of their way for. We hope you will, too.
