LA – Day 4

Day 4, and my search for a reasonable cup of coffee in America continues. After I was here the last time I sought advice from the guys at Nude Espresso. They’re based on Hanbury St right around the corner from my studio and I think they possibly do the best coffee in London. They’re one of the leading lights in the 3rd generation of coffee shops in London, taking a more boutique and specialized approach to coffee after the years of caffeine rape by the unmentionable high-street chain cafes (I take this shit seriously).

Anyway, when I got back from the Eurotrash show in June,  Sasha at Nude recommended I check out  Intellegentsia Coffee and that I did.

We reached their Venice spot on Abbott Kinney with a short que in front of us. The coffee didn’t disappoint.

They also recently collaborated with Madlib to develop his own blend of espresso.

And on to the beach for a lil nature before the show opens.

There’s always going to be food involved.

Opening time. Get your game-face on.

    I was so impressed with Nude that I bought some beans the last time I was in there. Have to give a mention to Fernandez & Wells on Beak Street (and other locations in Soho). They’re on a par with Nude.

    Nice post, by the way.
