This coffee shop is special to me in many ways. Its one of the most inviting, yet instagramable places I’ve ever been to. When you walk in, the walls are usually covered in local art pieces that literally shift your mood to happiness and joy the second you look at them.
Fueled by Gangsta Rap and Coffee…
This gorgeous coffee shop is owned and operated by the ever amazing Carolina Martinez. This lady instantly brightens up a room when she walks in, especially if she brings some of her coffee. Carolina has been in the coffee industry for FOREVER! She has been a roaster, barista, and bar manager with the ultimate goal to open up her own shop.
Carolina fell in love with coffee through roasting, but that has turned into such a deeper level of commitment to her clients. Serving people quality cups of both tea and coffee with method and attention really makes her happy. With every cup of coffee she serves, you can feel the love and intention she pours into it, literally and figuratively.
Carolina grew up in the San Francisco area, so its not surprise that her coffee shop has more of a SF vibe than an LA vibe. Its eclectic, warm, and full of so much soul. San Francisco is the hub and original port of 3rd wave coffee culture. You can feel the inspiration the owner found from living in SF for so long as you walk into the shop. You’ll probably hear Carolina say hella or hecka if you’re lucky! ?
If you are in the LA area, Clove Coffee is a must try!
