What more can you ask for. Four (4) Synesso twins head brew units. One (1) 4 brewhead GS2. And so many grinders that I can't count them all. Here is a place where you can enjoy their game changing BlackCat espresso, and then compare it with a single origin expresso. There are many pour over choices too. This is a place to come to and come often. Its a great place. My only negative is that it is small and hard to congregate. But when it comes to brewing and beans, this is a must go if one is ever in the greater LA area.
Reviews of Intelligentsia Coffee (Venice, CA)
Just arrived in from Melbourne in transit to Detroit and my bro swung by airport and took me to intelligentsia for quick fuel up! Flat white and macchiato later and feeling the jet lag disappear already. I love this place! There's a reason it's so many Aussies fav place to grab a cup of joe!
Very cool cafe in Abbot Kinney Blvd in Santa Monica... I went 4 days in a row, all the coffees were good, although quite inconsistent from barista to barista. One of those coffee's was amazing, so I think my biggest frustration was knowing how good it "could" taste, and not having that met every time. Be prepared to wait too... Obviously very popular with the locals, but it's just a real shame that so many great cafe's are afraid to work on putting out great coffee, but a little faster... Over all, a great place, great coffee... Just hope that you get a great barista and you won't be disappointed.
