There are people who need their coffee. And there are people who would be willing to go to jail for their morning coffee.

Last week, a grocery store told police that an unknown man ran inside the neighborhood shop, grabbed part of the store's coffee maker and bolted out of the store.

Police are baffled by the brazen theft, which occurred at about 2:20 p.m.

"I don't know why anyone would take that," said Officer Albie Esparza.

He then gave us some ideas as to why: The thief  took the metal rack with three coffee drips off the maker, which is worth more than $400.

The man was seen getting into a dark sedan car. Police scoured the neighborhood looking for the wanna-be barista, who was no doubt already home brewing a cup of joe, or three.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
