We wanted the perfect cup of coffee, so we roasted it. We believe that the future can be humane, sustainable and delicious - so delicious we won't wait for it to arrive. The future is businesses that have a minimal ecological footprint, that are tied constructively to their consumer and producer communities. The future is knowing what is enough and savoring a sweet little spot in a well-balanced world. We serve our customers the future today by providing magnificent, ethically-sourced coffees, medium-roasted and expertly blended for espresso and more that will blow their minds and let their thoughts drift to a future worth working for. It's not science fiction, it's Scarlet City.

Resistance is Futile.


Coffee Subscriptions : Resistance is Futile.

Unable to resist the sweet delicious flavor of freshly-roasted Scarlet City coffee? Find yourself panicking when you get to the end of a bag? Maybe it's time to assimilate.  Our Resistance is Futile Subscription Program generates a stress-free existence by replicating a world where your supply of coffee never runs low.

RiF subscribers get $1 off each lb, per order.  Simply choose which coffee(s) (including rotating Roaster's Choice), number of weeks in between orders (maximum 4), shipping info (if necessary), submit the order, and you're all set. We'll contact you to confirm the details, then once your subscription is set up, we'll email you an invoice from Square on the Sunday prior to your scheduled Tuesday roast date, to allow you to cancel or make changes in your order. Simply pay the invoice before 8am Tue or opt to have it charged automatically to your card, and we'll roast & ship it out by the end of the day.  If you choose the option to pick up at our espresso bar in Emeryville, your order will be available for pick up by 11am on Weds.

Please fill out this form to get you started.  We'll confirm these and other details with you after we receive your info.  Note that most of our single origin coffees will change from time to time, as will our non-espresso blends, so they're generally only available as a part of the Roaster's Choice option.  However, if you do have a favorite, please indicate in the comments and we'll be happy to accommodate as long as the coffee is available.  Each of our espresso blends, including decaf, will be available year round.  Please note that the time it takes to set up your subscription can vary between 2-5 days, due to time of year, response times, etc., so if you need coffee immediately, we advise placing an order or buying directly from the bar or Berkeley Bowl West.
