But First, Coffee!

December 13, 2017

If you want to win my heart, you can win it with coffee. That's how much I love coffee! But believe it or not, I didn't begin drinking it until about two and a half years ago when I started a new full-time job at a startup. Yes, it is true when people say startups usually have well-stocked kitchen... We had a pour over coffee, a Nespresso machine, cold brew and nitro on tap. Needless to say, I got addicted. Soon after that, I was gifted my own Nespresso machine at home and so I started drinking even more coffee. And now, when I wake up in the morning, I literally cannot start the day until I have my coffee. Most days I make my own iced honey latte (I use Altissio espresso from Nespresso, mix with honey, and pour that over 3/4 glass of milk over ice) in the morning but since I work from home, occasionally I like to venture out and work from different coffee shops. Here are my favorite spots around town...

490 N Beverly Dr, Beverly Hills
Oh, the infamous Alfred! There are a few locations but I prefer the newer one over in Beverly Hills right near Rodeo Drive (these photos were shot there by the way). I love their iced vanilla latte and the rose white chocolate croissant is so so so good AND pretty!

8251 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles
Carrera on Melrose and my apartment have one thing in common... it is all white! Love the space there and that tiled floor. Latte is great (yes that's all I ever drink) and they have yummy bites too!

6115 Sunset Blvd #150, Los Angeles
Coffee is good but to be honest I just really love Rubies + Diamonds because it's pink and it's next to my favorite sushi restaurant Sugarfish.

230 N Larchmont Blvd, Los Angeles
A classic latte is just right here. This place gets lots of foot traffic hence great for people watching!

7962 Fountain Ave, West Hollywood
This hidden gem is on a quiet street within walking distance from my apartment. If you want something low key and a chill spot to work, this is your place to be. This is also the origin of my honey latte addiction.
