SLO Life Magazine

When we moved to San Luis Obispo 4 years ago, SLO Life Magazine was a big part of how we learned about the amazing community here in San Luis Obispo.  Now, almost 4 years later, it’s such an honor to have been featured on the cover.  Here’s the story for those that may have missed the issue!

Island Earth Film Screening with Chris Burkard

We’re doing another movie event with Chris Burkard at his studio in Pismo tonight! He’ll be screening Island Earth, produced by Emmy winning film-maker Cyrus Sutton (read all about it here).  We’re always super excited to work with Chris and his team, so can’t wait for this one.  Definitely join us out there if you can!


AAA Westways Magazine Feature

A few months ago, we had the great honor of being approached by the iconic AAA Westways brand (yes, the same people we’ve all called for a tow at some point or another!). They let us know they wanted to feature Scout in their California travel magazine which has over 9.8 Million readers.  We were obviously very excited to get our copy of the magazine yesterday, and love that they consider Scout to be “The Picture-Perfect Pitstop” in San Luis Obispo.

Thanks so much, AAA Westways!

Finalizing our new buildout and opening the Foothill location.  Thanks to everyone for the amazing support!


Scout Coffee Foothill -- Drink it in sign

Scout 2 / 880 E. Foothill Blvd.

We just opened up our second location at 880 Foothill Blvd on August 2!  Lots of stories to come about all of the details and our process, but here are a few opening photos, along with some of the video clips we took as we built it out.

Our hours at this location are: 6:30a – 7:30p.

We are excited to be here and are looking forward to the life this new location takes on as it grows.  Thanks so much for all of your ongoing support!

Roasting Coffee

February HoneyCo Minute

It’s been a long time since we put one of these videos up!  This shows a little from behind the scenes at our roasting company, HoneyCo Coffee, also based here in SLO.  Hope you enjoy.  Music, as always, from our friends Eager Seas.


Scout #2 // Spring 2016

We are really excited to announce our second retail location right here in San Luis Obispo! We’ll be at 880 Foothill, in the University Square center, right near Highway 1. We are just starting our buildout, so we made a little video to show what all we’ve been up to. Hope you enjoy!

Oh, and if you are interested in buying our coffee online, here’s the spot.  And music on the video thanks to our best buds here in SLO, Eager Seas (formerly Lakes).
