There is nothing short of a specialty coffee boom happening in Los Angeles.
The past six months alone have seen an influx of brand new indie bars and micro roasteries, while some well-established players have moved into L.A.’s fertile ground. We present the following as evidence:
Now comes Bar Nine Collective, a new roastery and coffee bar planned for Culver City, recently home to Cognoscenti Coffee. A project of Zayde Naquib (formerly of Espresso Cielo and Two Guns Espresso) and business partner Jereme Pitts, the roastery is expected to open sometime in the middle of October, featuring an expansive industrial-feeling space decked out with a huge bar and tons of reclaimed wood.
