While I'm not a cup-a-day coffee drinker, I do love the smell of a freshly brewed cup of coffee and enjoy an occasional pick-me-up from time-to-time. Handsome Coffee Roasters in downtown Los Angeles is certainly for the serious {yet playful} coffee drinker. There are no lattes, teas, or other non-coffee items, but they do have morning treats from Proof, which is my favorite bakery in LA.


I loved the Colombian San Sebastian for its smooth, rich, and nutty flavor, and the space for its light and airy feel. You can see right into the back roasting area where all the magic happens, and you just might find a bike messenger {or three} hanging out in between shifts in this industrial, yet up-and-coming, part of town. — Joy
