This place is the absolute best. Sam is a great person and is so passionate about his coffee. I could spend the entire day here just hangingout with him. The cold brew is simply amazing. I won't be getting coffee anywhere else from now on. If your not here with us then where are you?

I think most of us come here for two reasons - the perfect cup and a dose of Sam's hospitality. My husband says that Sam's one of those special people who actually makes your coffee the way you ask for it. I agree. When you tell him you want it full-bodied/medium (etc), he'll get it just right. And the funny... More

We were in a part of San Francisco that we rarely frequent looking for some coffee and saw this Golden Bear Trading Company. We met the gregarious owner Sam and tried some of his coffee which his company selects and roasts themselves. Each cup is individually brewed, so the coffee is not cheap. But it was very delicious. My wife... More

I love seeing people passionate about making coffee- make coffee. Golden Bear brought this on. I also love the idea of focusing on one aspect of coffee: pour-overs, which I feel allows them to really perfect this one particular brew of coffee. (They don't do any espresso drinks) They have many different beans to choose from, and according to the... More

Unbelievable coffee. American coffee that's strong and with real flavor. Try this place, you will not be disappointed.

We were blown away by the passion and love Sam shows for his customers. He explained that he was in this for the love of coffee and customers, having already been successful in real estate. This was a unique coffee experience on a lovely corner in the sunset. Make sure to walk up to golden gate heights and see the... More

The Golden Bear Market was down the street from the bed and breakfast my mother and I stayed at during our trip to San Francisco. We had breakfast sandwiches and ordered the fresh roasted coffee. The gentleman who was behind the counter had several options of coffee beans and will grind, then individually brew each cup of coffee. I enjoyed... More

Randomly stopped in for a quick cup of coffee and wow, what a treat. Not only was the coffee excellent (they roast their own, and brew it as you order it) but they have the best baklava I've ever tasted. As I sat and talked with one of the owners, Sam, I learned that everything is created in-house from roasting... More

The Golden Bear Market on 6th and Judah in the gorgeous Sunset area is the best coffee and snack shop! My favorite is the Ethiopian Medium Roast, which Sam or Kathy prepare with the perfect amount of cream and raw sugar. The have several drippers going across their coffee bar so you don't have to wait forever for service. It's... More
