What you'll do

We’ll begin in downtown LA at Verve Coffee Roasters, where we’ll sample a few distinct coffees from around the world using a pour over method. I will educate you on different brew methods and give an overall history of specialty coffee in LA. After we’re done, we'll head to the nearby Don Francisco's Coffee Casa Cubana, to enjoy espressos and learn about coffee shop jargon. From there, we’ll explore the streets of downtown Los Angeles and check out the great street art before we end up at G & B Coffee in Grand Central Marker where we will drink creamy macchiatos and have a final Q&A session. Feel free to stop me any time along the way if you want to take a photo.

Things to keep in mind

More tips

I suggest eating something before you arrive. It might be very hot so bring a bottle of water and some sunscreen. Parking meters have two hour max so I would suggest ubering in or parking in a lot
