Places to Drink Tea in Los Angeles: {Alfred Tea Room}

May 17, 2016 – West Hollywood, CA – All my tea-loving friends, it’s the moment you’ve been waiting for! Alfred Tea Room is open! Just across the street from the original Alfred Coffee & Kitchen on the super-swank Melrose Place, Alfred has a new (almost) tea-only shop.

It is pink. It is gorgeous. It has Nitro Chai on tap.

It also has iced Matcha with almond milk (pictured above). Both are delicious, just like you would expect for $5-7 per drink. I went for the Nitro Chai because it just sounds really badass. It was delicious…

Q&A with Greg Thomas of Trystero Coffee

This is the¬†third in a series of interviews with people who work in the coffee industry. Going forward, I’ll be posting an interview with someone in the coffee world once a month. I like learning how people ended up working in this business, and this gives me an excuse to ask all the questions I want. ūüôā If there is something you’ve always wanted to know about the world of coffee, post your questions in the comments or email me at anne@annelovescoffeemore.com, and I’ll do everything I can to get you the…

Places to Drink Coffee in L.A.: Woodcat Coffee Bar

From my¬†Places to Drink Coffee in Los Angeles series (a real thing I just made up), today I am giving you a rundown on Woodcat Coffee Bar in Echo Park. First a quick poll: Am I the only one who, upon reading the name “Woodcat,” mentally chants “How much wood could a woodcat chuck if a woodcat could chuck wood?”? ¬†Anyone? Comment below.¬†By the way, woodcat is an old Scottish nickname for a hare, proving once again that Scottish people are awesome. I am part Scottish. Anyway, as I was saying, Woodcat Coffee Bar…

Places to Drink Coffee in L.A.: Paramount Coffee Project (a.k.a. PCPLA)

Today I am reviewing the Australia-inspired coffee shop Paramount Coffee Project Los Angeles, which is PCPLA for short. It took me approximately 5 weeks to learn the correct order of that acronym, but I love Australians so I forgive them for making me think I am stupid, temporarily (for 5 weeks). Paramount Coffee Project started in Sydney as a collaboration between Jin Ng of Paramount House, Mark Dundon of Seven Seeds and Russell Beard of Reuben Hills. After success in Sydney, PCP decided to open¬†Los Angeles, and in keeping with the specialty coffee and food format of a…

The $10 Latte (only in L.A.*)

  When reviewing Alfred Coffee {Melrose Place} for this blog at the end of October, I included information about the almost unbelievable “$10 latte” at the end of the¬†post. I had heard the legend of the Alfred Coffee $10 latte, but I had never bothered to¬†ask what made it so expensive, mostly because I do not even like a $2 latte but also because it seemed pretty obnoxious – braggartish as a matter of fact – to be advertising a coffee drink simply for the fact that it is¬†$10. In fact, prior to writing the…

Places to Drink Coffee in L.A.: Alfred Coffee & Kitchen {Melrose Place}

Hey there. Today’s subject is Alfred Coffee & Kitchen {Melrose Place} in West Hollywood – also known as the first of the Alfred Coffee shops – and not to be confused with the second Alfred Coffee {In the Alley} that is on Melrose Avenue and exactly 0.3 miles from the original shop. Don’t ask me why, but probably because Los Angeles residents are generally afraid to walk anywhere, and if a street needs to be crossed, it is seen as¬†a real legitimate¬†reason¬†for abandoning the entire mission. Of the three Alfred Coffees I…
