ABC Wednesday: H is for Hansen Coffee

The Hansen Coffee Company continues to roast coffee daily near Jack London Square.  In business since 1894, the area the factory is in was formally a heavily industrial neighborhood.  Now it is primarily devoted to retail businesses, many of which are struggling to keep their heads above water.
For more "H" photos, vist ABC Wednesday.
This is an automatic post.  I'm traveling and will likely have restricted access to computers to comment on your blogs.  Back in town on October 1.


  1. This reminds «Louis» that he's never learned where Hansen sells their coffees. They must keep a very low profile - but somehow they are still around. Unlike Peerless or «Louis'» own local roaster, he's never known of anyone using Hansen coffee.

  2. Bon voyage! Nice piece of industrial history in a bold composition.

  3. Hi. I saw your comment on ABC Wednesday and took the liberty of linking you to the list. If you object, I can delete. If you'd like, send another comment to us, or e-mail me directly, and we'll post the rest of your September posts.

    BTW, love old factories., ABC Wednesday team

  4. Locally roasted coffee beans make for the best coffee. And such places seem to located quite uniquely, too.

  5. Well despite their lack of percolating business I appreciate that very cool looking neon coffee pot ad - an urban art form.
