John Winston Ono Lennon would have been 73 today. He once said, ”Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.” Shine on, JL.
We were happy to have our buds at The Pancake Epidemic, a division of Street Virus creative agency, host their weekly breakfast and creative coffee talk at our LA cafe and roastery recently. We got a chance to talk shop with TPE’s Brandon Davenport who just returned from his adventure filming the web series, Caffeination, an expedition scouring the best of the West to find out what’s brewing. And of course, thank you to Sugarbloom bakery for making face melting pastries, per usual. Yes, the rumors are true. Campfire S’mores and Kimchi Spam Musubi Croissants are making dreams come true everyday here on South Santa Fe.
We’ve been overwhelmed and so thankful for all of the great press we’ve been receiving in L.A. since opening last month. Check out the inside scoop below with links to these fine publications.
According to local legend, witches used to hold rituals in the area of Guatemala Finca El Injerto where the Aguirre family planted this La Calaca Gesha. Found animal skulls gave La Calaca, or “the Skull”, its name and offer proof of the story. Farm workers believe they have transformed the rituals of those long ago witches into a good spell–the coffee cultivated here will bewitch any who dares to drink it. Shop now.
We love L.A.
Opening up shop in the City of Angels has given us a new profound appreciation of California in general, and these photos from Brad Elterman’s new book Dog Dance (out Sept. 30 from Damiani) shot in LA in the 1970s and early 80s and featured in this week’s New York Times Style Magazine, make us wanna spend our days with a woman unkind. We’ll meet you up there where the path runs straight and high.
