Lady Falcon Coffee Club's signature Queen of the Beach Espresso

Tasting Notes: BAKER'S CHOCOLATE · GRAND MARNIER · GRAPEFRUIT ZEST

Queen of the Beach is the name of Lady Falcon Coffee Club's signature espresso and it is also a proclamation of their deep roots in the Sunset District, in Ocean Beach and in Lady Falcon Coffee Club's beloved City of San Francisco, honoring local femme legend Carol Schuldt. Carol was a Lady-Falcon-type free-spirit who believed in the power of the water: bodysurfing at Ocean Beach daily as her spiritual practice, wearing her signature red lipstick and holding court speaking her mind unabashedly over many a bonfire where she was the only woman in attendance. She is an example of the spirit of counter culture thinking that permeates this neighborhood past, present and future. Carol passed away in 2018, but her legacy lives on.

Rwanda, Burundi, and Guatemalan beans lend a hand to make up our divine, bright, and juicy espresso.

About Lady Falcon Coffee Club:

Born in San Francisco, the name Lady Falcon Coffee Club is a respectful nod to an era in San Francisco's ocean beach history. In the 1880’s, an impromptu neighborhood of abandoned street cars on Judah Street became “Carville-by-the-Sea.” Carville housed many a freethinker. The Falcon Ladies Bicycling Club was one of the first street cars in the bunch and helped shape the legend of Carville.

These women were rebels in their own way, in their own day. Ladies straddling bicycles in the late 1800’s... women couldn’t even legally vote then and were restricted by corsets and petticoats. With bicycling, a freedom of movement liberated them. They must have felt like they had wings.

With deep roots on Judah Street in San Francisco, Lady Falcon Coffee Club sought to imagine the lives of these forerunners who built the spirit of the neighborhood on a sand dune they love so well -- with recycled streetcars, grit, tenacity and a passion for fun. They found like-minded bohemians and artists and created a club in the outskirts of the City, in a new neighborhood that embraced and appreciated their quirkiness as well as their flair for originality.

Lady Falcon Coffee Club coffee harnesses that spirit of originality, as they handcraft their coffee the old fashioned way and with their own unique style—in their own way, in their own day. They hope you will love it.
