Equal parts a product of love and good timing, Grand Coffee was founded by Nabeel Silmi in the post-recession days of 2010. In the decade since, Grand has become a gathering place for all in the community: immigrants, artists, abuelas, tech workers, service workers, queer folx, people who just moved to San Francisco, people who have spent their whole lives in San Francisco, and so many more.
To expand on the mission of connecting people with quality, independent coffee, Nabeel tapped longtime employees Kimberly Kim and Adrian Lopez. As a coffee roastery, Grand believes that coffee is convivial, conversational, and mind-opening; and that the community formed around a space is as instrumental as the space itself.
As we grow, you can always find us at our original location on Mission Street, but you’ll be pleased to find our coffee at other local cafes, restaurants, grocery stores, and even this website.
