My favorite Barista is Intelligentsia on the Trendy Abbot Kinney Blvd.

In October of 2010 I have written a Blog post about this wonderful Coffee Destination Place. It is not just a coffee shop http://actvra.in/ML5 it is a place to see and be seen. Quite frankly I just go for the great coffee. I have consistently bought the eight ounce Latte. Diane has had their cappuccino and she has raved about it. I was on the phone with her today and mentioned I am going for a cup of coffee, she immediately asked are you going to Abbott Kinney Blvd and I answered in the affirmative: yes I am going to Intelligentsia.

 There are two Baristas who make this. Step one: the coffee is made and then Step two:  followed by the whipped cream. The second person is the Artist. He receives the coffee and the cream and in one pouring motion creates the Latte with an Artwork. The designs vary seasonally or whatever mood the Artist is in. I have had Christmas Trees to you name it. So if you are in Los Angeles close to Venice, Marina Del Rey, Santa Monica or just anywhere on the west side of Los Angeles and you are in the mood for a great cup of Java Intelligentsia is the place to go. As far as I am concerned even a ten mile detour is worth the trip. Be prepared that parking will be a challenge and there will be a line to get this great coffee.

The best part is, you get a wonderful cup of coffee, no comparison to the National Brand Name Chain. It is so good I cannot go to the other coffee places I am so spoiled by the wonderful flavor. The best part is now they are in more places than when I blogged about them in October of 2010 check it out (http://www.intelligentsiacoffee.com/locations ) Latest rumor I heard is that they will be opening a Coffee Bar in San Francisco next. How exiting is that for the residents of San Francisco.

 

When I buy coffee which is not poured, then it is Coffee Beans, I guess it is time for me to buy their beans so I could have it every morningJ Please check out what others think of this coffee place on yelp or check another blogger’s review here http://dailyshotofcoffee.com/from-just-average-to-top-notch-intelligentsia-coffee-review-update/

Endre - You always know the best places to go for food, wine, and now coffee - Intelligentsia!  You know it's going to be good when they put a fancy piece of artwork on top of their latte!

Any place that is worth driving 10 miles out of the way to get too must be a good stop!  Thanks for sharing, I am sure others in your community will appreciate the "tip!"  Great local post for your area small businesses.
