Golden Line Coffee Bar at 618 Anacapa Street has expanded hours and is now be open on Fridays. Their new operating hours are Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Golden Line Coffee Bar is a pop-up Coffee and Tea Bar located inside Villa Wine Bar in downtown Santa Barbara whose goal is “to provide modern, quality coffees, teas, and pastries; work toward supply chain equity and environmental sustainability; and provide a unique & inspiring place for our community.”
Featured drinks for the summer are: Iced Strawberry Matcha, with house-made organic strawberry syrup and matcha by kettl; Cocoa-Infused Cold Brew Coffee, made with sustainably sourced Guittard Cocoa; and Iced Vanilla Latte, with house-made syrup made with sustainably sourced vanilla beans from Madagascar and Papua New Guinea.
Golden Line Coffee Bar has also been building out their tea selections and have added some teas from local importer Far West Tea Traders to complement offerings from kettl. I am told that the most popular so far are the Meishan Jin Xuan, aka “Milk Oolong”, and the Brandy Oolong, aka “Plum Honey.” Both of these can be hot or iced.
