Industry Insider: Fans Of Art And Coffee Will Have It All When Sightglass And SFMOMA Join Forces


If you weren’t excited enough for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) to make its big return next spring, how about we sweeten the deal with some high-quality caffeine? San Francisco-based independent coffee company, Sightglass, is partnering with SFMOMA and opening a brand new coffee bar on the museum’s third floor.

Art enthusiasts will be able to take a break from admiring the impressive collections and choose from a selection of handcrafted coffee beverages and pastries at the shop, which will be adjacent to the brand new Photography Interpretive Center, a part of the John and Lisa Pritzker Center for Photography.

Sightglass is already a huge hit with coffee connoisseurs who are fans of co-owners and brothers Justin and Jerad Morrison’s detailed approach to quality production. The Morrisons believe that the story behind the coffee they serve is an important part of connecting the customer to the wider world, which is why they maintain close relationships with their coffee producers. Every year, the brothers travel all over the world from Central and South America to East Africa to source fresh-crop beans.

Sightglass has opened two coffee bars and roasteries in the Mission and SOMA neighborhoods since its inception in 2009. The company also has a Saturday coffee booth at the San Francisco Farmers Market located at the Ferry Building.
