The Los Angeles Coffee Festival is Next Week

By Rachael Medina November 02, 2019

If you weren’t able to make it to the San Francisco Coffee Festival—or if you are just massively obsessed with coffee (like we are)—have no fear: The Los Angeles Coffee Festival (LACF) is nearly here. The event is set to include tons of coffee from top roasters, gourmet food, live music, and art displays that fully encapsulate the coffee-drinking experience. This year marks DTLA’s second annual flagship coffee event, and it is sure to be a blast. 

Because so much goes into crafting the perfect cup, there are infinite ways to celebrate the art of coffee. From masterclasses and home-brewing instructional sessions to tastings and latte-art competitions, there is no end to what the Los Angeles Coffee Fest can offer.
