los angeles has become the mecca for new coffee shops & navigating them all can be quite the challenge. luckily, patricia manlucu has created the cutest guide that is totally printable (yay PDF!) on her blog! i had to share this because she was kind enough to feature my shot of compañía de café in south gate. love this so much xx

compañía de café…

after seeing this coffee shop pop up on my feeds, i had to venture to the valley to experience this treasure for myself. compañía de café is one of those places that has to be seen in person to really enjoy the intense colors, rich smells, & hospitable staff. the mexican influence is heavy, yet intriguingly modern. i was in a very happy place. as a mexican, i felt instantly at home. i tried several drinks, ranging from the horchata latte, aguas frias, to the standout carbonated tamarind cold brew. everything was meticulously cared for that my only gripe (if any!) would be that it’s oh so far. a definite trek, but worth every bit of valley traffic…
