Lot 44: New Coffee Concept Opening Downtown This Spring
I hope you haven't had enough of the Great Coffee Debate that has been ROCKING the Southland ever since hip joints like LA Mill and Intelligentsia have hit the scene. (Although you all know that we prefer a cup of the working man's brew, Dunkin' Donuts coffee, over here.) A new coffeehouse, Lot 44, is set to hit downtown sometime this spring.
Downtown blogger Angelenic has the, um, scoop from founder Ariel Graham:
“We will be the first ‘cup bar’ in Southern California. Each cup you buy (of single origin or blend), will be brewed to order exactly how you want it — without attitude. The cup menu is varied to satisfy diverse palates, offering about ten choices of organic, fair trade, pesticide-free brews from small lots as well as larger coffee estates,” she says. Graham's LinkedIn page also reiterates her commitment to doing something different with this coffee gig: "I look forward to doing coffee L.A. style with a focus on sustainable, shade grown, organic and small farm gems,fabulous pastries and handmade artisan chocolates." “It’s how we do coffee in L.A.”
