Props to Eater for pointing this one out. I had a Cortado (my goto espresso based drink) and it was excellent -proper temperature, well balanced between the espresso and steamed milk. They brew with just a bit of sugar which doesn’t make it sweet but balances the drink nicely.
for the sugar sticks on the side they had a piloncillo which was a nice touch.
Also had the nitro brew (hot) which I had never seen before. That method really brings out the aromatics which made one of there lighter roasts taste like a lemon tea. Not really for me but I imagine some might love it.
All in all I think the cortado was one of the best i’ve had in LA. Up there with Go Get em Tiger and Endorphine for me.
