Fall 16 | Philz Coffee

Over the summer, I spent a week in San Diego and constantly heard from friends how ‘Philz is the best’. I’m no coffee expert, but I am a very curious person. So! I had to give it a try when I visited Facebook’s campus. (Thanks Ryan for treating me and taking me around!)

a terrible phone picture (b/c nothing ruins a conversation quite like whipping out the dslr)

I got a cup of their Philtered Soul, as per a friend’s recommendation. Dang, it’s strong. The hazelnut flavor especially. I have to say that I didn’t like the hazelnut that much- but that’s how I am with hazelnut coffee in general.

But the coffee was great. And there’s a ton of flavors to choose from, separated by light/medium/dark roasts (Philtered Soul falls within the medium category). I love that. I’m the type of person that rotates music genres, study spots, etc. and I can definitely see myself doing the same with their drip coffees.

Definitely give it a try if you happen to be in the area.

(I need to try a few more flavors and coffee shops in general before I can say anything about ‘best’ though haha)
