About Us

  • Who are we?

    At Paper Son Coffee we believe that what makes "good coffee" is deeply personal.

    Our core principles are:

    1) Prioritize serving locally roasted coffee. We want help make the Bay Area scene distinct!

    2) Create approachable beverages across the coffee enthusiast spectrum.

    3) Incorpoarate Asian flavors in our drinks.

    Why "Paper Son"?

    The name of the coffee shop is an homage to how our founder's family (and so many others in San Francisco) immigrated to the US - a reminder there are many facets to the Asian American experience.

    Why is it relevant to a coffee shop? Historically the paper son relationship encapsulated a business transaction that morphed into a genuine (familial) connection.

    We want to approach interacting with the community in the same way. Even through you're "just" buying or selling coffee, you end up fostering real relationships along the way. And we love that.

    Please join us on our journey as we open our OWN shop!
