style & service : Single Origin Coffee x Short Cake, Los Angeles

Once upon a fall season, a honey processed coffee named La Cuestona Lopez from the of El Aguacatal, Chalatenango in El Salavador was exclusive to Single Origin Coffee Los Angeles and Short Cake LA by way of Verve Coffee Roasters in Santa Cruz, California.

In the historic, original Farmers Market space, there I found this most romantic duo the billet-doux accenting the Los Angeles coffee scape. When you’re here, we want you in the mood. Not necessarily with a set point of view, but to take the experience and have whatever you feel like having,” said barista, Alex Guzman.

This journey, at times, one shot if by mocha, a dozen ounces if by pour over and up to a dozen half. If by cold brew was among the coffee quintuplet whose identity was only identical in that each, was a continuum of the expulsion of an explosion of flavor by five.

One can’t polarize people. We’re here to meet them in the middle, then they can appreciate what [coffee] is.” Hourie Sahakian

So, then, let the abstract of La Cuestona Lopez’s story be this: oh honey, your garden strawberry texture, brightened me and made me full, like a bodied wine, I do declare!
