It’s not often that I get a plum assignment that is essentially one of my very favorite things to do … ever. always. often.
But I got really lucky and scored the “mother” of all freelance writing jobs by putting together a guide on some great spots to drink amazing coffee. So that’s what I’ve been doing the last few days, heading out to coffee bars, drinking delicious coffee, weighing-in on latte art and probably eating more pie and cake than I should have — but isn’t that always the case? (yes, yes it is.)
Truthfully, I am really impressed with Southern California’s growing and thriving coffee culture. It’s not just Los Angeles anymore either, Orange County, Inland Empire, San Gabriel Valley … all the neighborhoods that make-up So Cal all seem to have some kick-ass spots to sit down with a good book and a fantastic cup of coffee. I don’t want to reveal too much about the story, I’ll post here when it finally runs. But in the meantime, here’s a couple of photos from my research that really knocked my socks off. Sadly, I ate the pie before I took a picture, but trust me when I tell you … it was awesome!
