[S]an Francisco’s Potrero Hills neighborhood has a newly renovated roastery: Intelligentsia Coffee’s Roasting Works at 1125 Mariposa St.

Intelligentsia’s entire lineup of single-origin, blends, and espresso can be roasted on-demand for wholesale customers and shipped from the facility. They’ll be offering opportunities for coffee education, as well, according to a recent press release:

At the San Francisco Roasting Works, Intelligentsia will offer customized programs that teach wholesale customers to serve perfectly prepared coffee and espresso drinks at scale. The public also will be able to experience classes led by award-winning baristas about the fundamentals of making an exceptional cup of espresso, among others.

The newly renovated facility is 5,000 square feet and can crank out up to 4,000 pounds of coffee a week with its 1952 Probat UG 22 roaster. Intelligentsia has occupied the space since 2011.

Weekly coffee tastings that include demonstrations of different brewing methods will take place at the Roasting Works every Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. The roastery is open Monday–Friday from 8:30 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
