The Guidelines

The is a basic manifesto that shapes a set of principles with which a coffee shop is chosen to be listed on the Coffee OC directory.

  1. The shop serves coffee that is single origin and/or direct trade.
  2. The shop’s coffee beans are locally roasted in small batches.
  3. The shop serves espresso drinks at their correct sizes (macchiato’s at 3oz., cappuccino’s at 6oz., latte’s at 8oz., etc.).
  4. The shop labels a roast date on their coffee bags for sale.
