We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Coffee has become the noble beverage du jour, with craft brew bars and roasteries popping up all over the city (and country, for that matter). Mindfully sourced beans, careful roasting processes, and deft preparation are what make these third wave coffee houses different than their predecessors, and the masses are happy to pay a pretty penny for such fancified coffee.

Some of the country's top roasters have decided to set up shop here in L.A. Chicago's Intelligentsia was one of the first to do so, and since their sucess Stumptown has also come into town. And now, one of the country's premiere roasters, Blue Bottle of San Francisco, is going to be opening in L.A.

Blue Bottle just signed their second lease in the city. The first was in Culver City, though that will likely be the second location to open. The first will be a roasting facility on Abbot Kinney in Venice slated to open in spring 2014.

In addition to Blue Bottle's standard roster of coffee-compatible baked goods like cookies, fruit buckles, sweet and savory shortbread and sesame absinthe cigars, which will be baked in-house, the Venice cafe will also offer one exclusive item reflective of local culture, similar to Blue Bottle Williamsburg's Brooklyn Bootleg S'mores. The unique Venice product could be a baked good or coffee drink, it's still tbd.

We just hope the lines aren't nearly as long as those at the Ferry Building. Those are brutal.
