Very nice fruity Ethiopian espresso. Cold brew also well extracted. Definitely one of the best in LA.
Australian Style Coffee including the fairdinkum Flat White, Short Black and Long Black all in traditional Aussie serving sizes.
Enjoyed my coffee here, it reminded me of coffee back home in Aus. The vegemite on the avocado toast was a nice surprise!!
If you’re an Aussie you’re gunna love this place, it’s a little piece of Melbourne smack bang in the middle of Orange County. Firstly, there is no WiFi and I’m sure some of the locals must hate that but the tables were packed with punters gulping down what I can only describe as the best coffee I’ve ever had outside of Australia. And I was disappointed to be told that these guys don’t have a location in Australia, in fact, they never had anything to do with coffee before opening this place in 2014. Ok, firstly I had their Macchiato and it took me straight back to St Ali in South Melbourne. It was legit!! A perfectly balanced espresso with a perfect stain of steamed foam. Second, their Flat White was the best Flat White I’ve ever had, the lovely lady who made it steamed that milk to perfection and extracted that ristretto to bring out super a mix of chocolate and sweet caramel and burnt sugar. The atmosphere is enticing enough to make you want to stay for hours, people watching was very cool, it was nice to see Americans enjoying real coffee. From the cafe you can see their two coffee roasters, they were roasting and the smell from outside made my mouth water. Aussies, if you’re anywhere near Disneyland in Anaheim this place is only an 8 minute drive, I drove from the convention centre after having their coffee at a pie shop in Costa Mesa. You won’t regret it!!
Light roast, quite complex flavour, modest amount of bitterness. Very enjoyable
Excellent long Black. Also incredibly nice guy explained all about his shop. Would highly recommend in LA
Late Review: I traveled to LA for a conference a while back and was very nervous about finding good coffee. I was instead thrilled to find coffee that came up to the standard of what I find back home in Melbourne Australia. The coffee was exceptional. Quality beans, passionate knowledgeable staff. An absolute win on all counts. I really hope that this quality coffee trend spreads through LA.
Great coffee made with great attention to detail. I must say though, that some barista's take their attention to detail a little too far. I watched them remake my coffee 3 times one day until they were happy.
Could be a great Australian coffee shop and baristas . Strong, milk stretched and smooth, great flavour. Very cool cafe in great location.
A coffee shop for coffee connoisseurs.
Such potential but let down by a few things. Guys behind counter were just doing their job. Not friendly. Literally every seat inside was taken by someone just working on a laptop. Coffee was bitter and milk was thin, not creamy. Surprised because people say this is a good place. Maybe they are just having an off day.
Good, mass produced option if you can’t find a local place. Not much by way of food. Consistently good.
