Speaking of good coffee shop in Los Angeles, one of my favorites is Handsome Coffee Roasters. Locates in the midst of warehouses at downtown LA, Handsome coffee is started by three guys who branched out from Intelligensia Coffee. I like how simple their menu is, just few items of simple coffee that’re from well roasted single origin beans. The interior consists of mostly high table for drinkers who go there mainly for the caffeinated beverages, and not to hang out whole day with your homework or screenplay writing.
Here’s a good cup of Espresso with Milk. No sugar needed (and you won’t find them).
Some people probably would find this place pretentious and snobbish. I personally just appreciate that such a simple “purist” place exists.
