December 2018 featured roasters

This time of the year is all about our many wonderful traditions and coming together to honor them. For December, we’re excited to announce we are honoring the age-old tradition of pairing coffee and chocolate by teaming up with our favorite Mission District neighbor, Dandelion Chocolate. Together we’ve come up with the ultimate combination of notes and flavor profiles to bring you and your loved ones the ultimate sweet treat this holiday season. Stop by the Playground all month long to give (or get!) the gift of delicious single-origin coffee and chocolates.

And now, for your palate’s pleasure, we present the featured line-up for “Together For The Holidays” Month:
