☕ Coffee omakase, anyone?

10/3 - 10/9: Free workout, vinyl listening party, & singles events



The Blue Bottle Studio experience is like omakase, but for coffee…

Yep, Blue Bottle has opened up a specialty coffee tasting studio now through November 5. It’s an eight-course tasting menu that walks you through various coffee brewing techniques and unique flavors. It’s a coffee experience unlike any you’ve had before ☕

I visited the Studio the other morning and was blown away. The space is relaxed and elegant, with soothing vinyl playing the entire time. There are only 8 seats, so the baristas take their time explaining the delectable and rare coffees that are reserved only for the Blue Bottle Studio residency. If I could enjoy my coffee this way every morning…

This spot is so popular, you’ll have to join the waitlist! ✍️

👋 OH HEY 👋

Mads here! This past weekend, I was in Santa Barbara for a wedding. I was able to check out a few newer spots that have been on my list lately: Satellite (natty wine on State St), The Eddy (cool boutique grocery store), and CAJÉ (the Arlington location with the stunning patio) 🗺️

Speaking of patios, to know me is to know that I love a patio. Friend of Camber, @kactus.jpg, shared a list of her favorite patios in her latest newsletter that you should def check out. A few more I would add: Superba Hollywood, L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele, Agnes, Wife & the Somm, and Botanica. What’s your fave patio in LA? 🍽️

Oh, also this is a cool guide to coffee shops that are putting an artisanal spin on the pumpkin spice latte. Slammers is my fave 🎃

Okay, now on to the coolest things happening this week.
