Our good friend Thomas Newbury, of Reveille Coffee CO stepped into the studio today and we thought we would take this chance to give a short introduction to one of the guys behind our new favorite coffee spots.
Reveille began humbly as a coffee cart before expanding into a brick and mortar location in North Beach on Columbus Avenue, and most recently has opened a beautiful new location in the Castro. Serving Four Barrel coffee and a changing menu of breakfast and lunch bites, it’s definitely worth a visit.
So how do we pronounce ‘Reveille’, I’m pretty sure I’ve been saying it wrong for a while.
Reveille is a French word meaning to awaken, or woken up. It’s pronounced reh-vay.
