Starting the first week of 2015, the new Philz Coffee Truck started setting up shop a block from my workplace! Days and hours are: Monday through Friday, 6am to 3pm. Lines started forming, so I decided to go during non-meal hours to try and catch a short line. The truck is based off of the successful local San Francisco coffee chain: Philz Coffee. They do gourmet coffee – one cup at a time. They grind the beans for your cup at the time of order and you can customize the cream/milk and sugar content.
Before going, I perused the online menu on Urbanspoon or Menuism and decided to get Philtered Soul since I love all things sweet. I chose “sweet” for the amount of sugar and wanted 2% milk for the cream. However, the barista said they had a nonfat milk mixed with real whipping cream, so I decided to get that instead. The coffee lived up to its hype and was AMAZING!
Philtered Soul is: a medium dark roast coffee at its sweetest. the philtered soul has a burst of chocolate with an overwhelmingly satisfying aftertaste sure to please your souls deepest desires. a favorite of all coffee drinkers who posses a sweet tooth. note: this blend may contain traces of hazelnut.
***Update 3/13/2015***: I tried the Mint Mojito Iced Coffee and it was smooth and creamy as advertised. No wonder why everyone loves it. Love the fresh mint leaves as well!
***Update 1/23/2015***: I tried the Hot Chocolate and it was sweet and you could taste the richness of the fresh cocoa beans. Philz also whipped cream fresh and added it to the drink.
Towards the front of the truck, they have a small slide-up window for pastries to compliment your beverage, if you so desire.
Having the Philz Coffee Truck only a block away from work could be a really good thing…or really bad thing.
