When it California, do what Californian's do! The state has become known for its coffee as much as it's known for its tech savvy neighbourhoods. If you're ever in the sunshine state, take a trip to 7FAM's favourite coffee shops.

Saint Frank Coffee is not a place for people watching, it's a place to relax. Take a break from the beach activities to indulge in the serene interiors and locally roasted brew. Coffee aficionados will find pleasure in an espresso “n” tonic but for those on the hunt for a more moderate, try the flat white with homemade almond milk.

Tucked away in Grand Central Market station is one long coffee bar, literally! Founded by the LA baristas Kyle Glanville and Charles Babinski, Good Coffee, Bad Coffee serves up a gourmet inspired selection from the world's top roasters and farms. Our favourite is the espresso dark and stormy. Its gingery kick, sweetened with a dash of caramel is the perfect morning boost.

Housed in a former San Francisco warehouse, Four Barrel Coffee is known for using the drip technique to craft coffee from the bean to the cup. In exchange for WiFi, the café plays vinyl records while your eyes wander out the large bay windows towards Valencia Street.
