Who is JBB?
Josey Baker Bread is a small team of bread bakers & pizza makers who specialize in freshly milled whole grain sourdough. We work at The Mill, the cafe/bakery we helped open in February 2013 with Four Barrel Coffee. We stone mill all of our whole grain flours in the bakery daily, and we bake bread and pizza 7 days/week (save for a few days off for holidays and a bakery retreat). You can find our loaves, pizza and flour everyday at The Mill, and a select handful of markets and restaurants around San Francisco and the East Bay.
