Pub & Kitchen/The Diving Horse chef Jonathan Adams has something else on his plate.
He and childhood friend Damien Pileggi are getting into the coffee game with Rival Bros Coffee, a small-batch, custom coffee roaster.
The company will peddle its whole beans online from the Rival Bros e-store and at a mobile coffee shop, The Rival Bros Truck, which will debut later this month in Love Park.
The truck has built-in pour-over stations, a La Marzocco two-group espresso machine with pre-infusion paddles, a Fetco extractor brewer, Italian-made Mazzer espresso coffee grinders, and a high-end sound system.
Pileggi worked for La Colombe, including three years in San Francisco as its West Coast brand ambassador.
Adams is not giving up his day job.
