I live and walk through SOMA to get to work in the Financial district. I wake-up fresh and enjoy the walk through the less crowded deep-SOMA streets until I am forced to work my way up to Market Street and deal with massive human influx situations. As with Socrates and Heidegger and their walks, this walk allows me to build my dialed-inward awareness. During these walks I enjoy my coffee, my audio book and real-time artistic perspectives of postmodern urban landscape I walk through. If there is one thing I don’t want in my morning routine it to wait in line for coffee. I waltz in here primetime, 8:30 AM-ish, every day and never, ever have to wait in a line. Every single other place in SOMA, from Sightglass on 7th to Starbucks on 2nd, has a wait. You see, when I have to deal with interacting with other humans, my attention zeros-in, like it does at work, on a whole set of human dynamics. In moments where I have to interchange or order coffee, I pause my audio book and have to expend the back-and-forth intrapersonal communication energy which is why I am so thankful that their staff keep me on audiobook pause for the minimum amount of time possible. I thought about making my own coffee but cleaning and relaying the damn reusable – often molded – cup doesn’t seem to work. And plus, I make horrible coffee. So this place processes the whole Soy Latte fast. The patented Peets caffeine jolt throws me right into my performing day. Quality? They make Peets coffee which tastes exactly like Peets coffee which is exactly what I always look for when I go to Petes – they have McDonaldized their coffee quality in a good way. I really love how fast they are. And when they see a line, another employee whizzes right into the second cash register and processes your order. Best of all, they keep it all professional. I mean, for me, if coffee shop staff gets to know you, because they know your name from writing it on the coffee cu, and, as a result, you have to exchange in that extra small talk back-and-forth every day, then I stop going there; here, the furthest they go is remembering your name. If I want to sit down, there are always seats available. Keep up the good work guys.
