brew me another cup


i love lots of things. fashion, food, art & more, but i truly heart coffee. i’ve been drinking coffee since i was a kid. yes, a kid. i didn’t have milk with my breakfast & thank goodness my mother never took away the mug that i would steal sips from. i just loved the taste of it. the strong jolt & deep, rich flavor poured in every mug. so now as an adult nothing has changed.

“the happiness i feel sipping a great cup of espresso or an artfully poured latte is one of my great moments of the day, especially when you’re experiencing the work behind the process.”

so as the world continues to embrace the many growing roasting & speciality coffee shops sprouting in los angeles, i will keep enjoying the friendly people that gather & share my love for this special art form…

driving through culver city’s arts district is a weekly occurrence since i love visiting cognoscenti coffee (delicious cortados!), but this time after noticing their eye-catching storefront, i finally stepped into gramercy york. an airy space filled with carefully curated finds of indie & well known designers, like clare vivier, malin & goetz, wolverine, it is a welcoming change to this ever booming street. the inviting centerpiece table houses gifts, housewares & an enviable selection of leather goods to make any accessories junkie swoon. i had to snag this pair of intoxicating candles from long beach’s pomme frites candle co. & couldn’t stop sniffing them on the ride home. keep this boutique on your radar westside…
