Thank you for the outpour of love and support over the last few days as we navigate this new, extremely uncertain territory for our business. As COVID-19 updates are rapidly changing, we want you to know that your health and safety continue to be our top priority. We’re following all guidelines from city, state and federal channels and taking every precaution to keep our team and community safe as we keep some of our doors open.

Protocols in effect:

  • No public restroom access at our Oakland Roastery location
  • Facilities and POS screens being disinfected on a frequent basis
  • Production teams required to wear gloves and masks
  • Customer Success teams are available from 6am to 6pm PST. Email us at and call or text directly to (510) 399-2441

New updates

Effective Tuesday, March 17th, our locations at 1505 Macdonald Ave, Richmond, Oakland Public Roastery, Oakland Coffee Box, and Daily Driver  and 650 California Street, SF will be closed until further notice.

How we can support each other

  • Beautiful Coffee. We’ve waived all shipping fees for coffee and merchandise purchased directly on our website.

  • Share — people at home need coffee too. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, and office managers about Red Bay Coffee and share the love. Every referral counts.

  • Staying Connected — we’ve already started sharing some of the creative energy of our Cafes directly to the people via live stream. Let’s keep enjoying our days in healthy ways.

If you believe that food, beverage and wellness choices can serve as vehicles for social restoration and environmental sustainability, this remains a great time to join our movement and continue bringing beautiful coffee to the people.

We will get through this together. Thank you for your continued support.

Let’s stay healthy! Refrain from greeting others with a handshake.

Our team is closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Since our humble beginning in 2014, Red Bay Coffee has served as a community hub. In bringing beautiful coffee to the people, we have an explicit commitment to care for our community. As we do our part in keeping our communities healthy, we encourage everyone to stay connected and invested in each other's well being.

We are a dedicated and experienced group of food and beverage professionals. We don’t take this matter lightly. In addition to operationalized guidance from federal, state, and local health authorities, we’re prioritizing preparation and prevention measures and proper communication and care to our internal and external communities.

For now, all of our locations remain open. We’re still searching for other creative ways to convene. To that end, we’re repurposing our Open House scheduled for March 14 and instead, we’re hosting a Virtual Tour of our new global headquarters. I’ll be answering questions via livestream and sharing more.

Below is a comprehensive list of the actions we’re taking and some simple ways you can help. If you have questions, requests, and/or ideas please contact us.

While we haven’t faced this specific challenge before we can and we will get through this together.

Keep supporting small businesses and Certified B Corporations.
