LAMill Boutique: Not Your Grandma's Coffeehouse

LA Mill finally (soft-)opened its "boutique" in Silver Lake last Friday and we were lucky to get there in time to sample the goods -- for free. The space is impressive but the environment -- almost pretentiously over the top. But let's discuss the coffee:
I had two clover-style (filtered French drip) cups, one Kenyan, was an average medium-dark blend, with an acidic yet moderately rich, roasted coffee bean aftertaste. I was more impressed with the Aged Sumatran Peaberry, although I nearly gagged just typing that out. And no it didn't taste like sour yogurt. It had legitimate richness and spice, which was lacking in the Kenyan.
