I've been to Cognoscenti Coffee probably a hundred times. I had always thought of them as a coffee curation café. They find some different, new, desirable bean. Then they serve it to their customers as a taster of what that coffee roaster has to offer. It's a fun way to enjoy different beans from around the world. However, apparently over the past year or so, they've started to roast their own bean right here in Los Angeles.
Typically, I bought a bag just to try it out. It's a light roast, and it sits right on top of your tongue. It reminds me a lot of a Ritual Coffee roast, which isn't necessarily my favorite, but it'd do the trick. I'm just glad to have another Los Angeles coffee roaster. Take Flight, Cognoscenti Coffee, and a few others. I'm going to do my best to seek out more Los Angeles local coffee roasters.
