Best Coffee in LA

Haha this reminds me of the girl on the LA Authentic Mexican food thread who wrote that El Coyote on Sunset was the best Mexican she'd had. She was eaten alive by the hounds on that thread, poor girl.

To Mr. Taster, to each his own. For him, coffee is just a coffee, and jamon iberico de bellota IS just a ham (The new Taberna y Arroz now serves in Santa Monica!) Which makes me question why a person who doesn't care about "just a cup of coffee" would be commenting on this thread.

Sawtelle Corridor - LA Neighborhood of the Month (Oct 2012)

Fuul at Dahab house is absolutely foul. Where else have you tried fuul because I haven't been able to find it anywhere. I suppose you'd have to go to someone's house to get fuul.

the bludso's golden state mash-up, has it opened up shop already ?

I used to frequent the Bludso's in Compton. Is the food still tasty? Or should I keep making the scenic drive to the original location? Craving a pulled pork sandwich right about now.... Do they have the smokehouses and everything?

Taberna Arros y Vi in SM Opens Wednesday

It was the paella Valencia. It was tasty, the rice was just right, and the portion was about the size of a personal pan sized pizza. There was socarrat crust on the bottom, and there would have been more had we not ordered it as the kitchen was widing down!

Not sure about their happy hour, but I assume there will be smaller portions of their regular tapas? Hopefully that includes the pigears too! (The normal size is a VERY generous portion).

When you go, don't forget to try the acorn fed piggies! Always my favourite.

@Peripatetic - If you're bothered about someone posting Urth, look further up; someone posted Coffee Bean :( I love Luxxe, never been to LA Mill. Gotta check that one out. You should also check out Conservatory for Coffee in Culver City. Sometimes it is hit or miss.

Anyone check out Chocolatt on Wilshire? Their mochas are good, as well as their cappuccinos. It is a small hole in the wall Belgian chocolate shoppe. Their chocolates were O.K. Their drinks are stronger than other places. I love both the Luxxe locations, but sometimes some baristas are better than others :/ I really like Espresso Profeta in Westwood. I suppose I like it more for the ambiance than for the coffee. I enjoy an iced soy mocha more than anything.

Chow just sent out an email about a good coffee joint on the touristy Sunset area? Anyone check that out? It is called Angela's or something. I plan on hitting that one up at some point this weekend.

Best Coffee in LA

I never drank coffee until I moved to Europe from LA, where it actually has flavour other than all the syrupy gunk many Angelenos like to put in. Everyone RAVES about Intellegentsia and Urth Cafe, and I agree, they're pretty darn good compared to Starbuck and the other chains. But they still don't have that WoW factor I look for when trying out a brew at a coffee house.

When go for coffee I frequent this place in Brentwood called Cafe Luxxe, I think some of the responses referred to it. The barista (I forgot his name, an uber friendly writer from Portland?Seattle?) knows his stuff, the ambience; non scenester, quiet, subtle. I don't know so much about self-roasting, I don't have any of the coffee gadgetry at home as I like my coffee to be more than a morning ritual.

I wanna check out this place called Euro Cafe on Santa Monica. Ever heard of it? I'm going there not for the perfect coffee, but for the best croissant which seems to be lacking in LA as well.
