If you've been reading this blog for a while, you know that I really love my coffee. Especially if its Intelligentsia Coffee... We had heard that Intelligentsia had opened a coffee "experience" in Venice Beach, on Abbott Kinney Drive.. But didn't visit until last night on a date ... Wow. The latte art holds nothing to the taste of this coffee. We (of course) bought a lb of happiness, which even made this morning a little sweeter. The place itself was indeed a coffee "experience" to be had... Each customer gets a barista (think coffee-making waitress vs. bartender) and you are guided around to a specific machine for your drink order. It seemed odd, but was really personal and a latte is the same price as anywhere else... Only it tastes about 100x better. Yum.
