i had such a great time working with domino magazine regarding their #locallyinspired series. i wanted to chose a part of los angeles that is relatively not on most peoples’ radar: larchmont village. enjoy the original tour here !
on a quite wednesday, i ventured over to the fairfax district towards the newly opened paramount coffee project la. a much awaited arrival to this aussie colab between mark dundon, russell beard, & ping jin ng. Aside from the exceptional drinks, the design will impress you every step of the way. the space is long yet inviting & you feel the warmth amidst the concrete details & hanging vines. i was immediately welcomed by a caring staff that poured a signature creamy flat white, but pair this with the ruby tea (hints of gin-like juniper!). i will certainly add this place to my go-to coffee list – m.

i was recently invited to lamill coffee in silverlake, to taste some of their new brunch fair & it was so delicious! i had a great time with friends & ended up staying for hours. I had forgotten how lovely the space was & can be for an intimate lunch or a late night snack.
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
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…
