    Interesting spot with over the top organic coffee, vibe, and brewing style. The iced Ethiopian was good. Ask for samples.

    Vanilla latte with almond milk was the best I've had. Very helpful baristas, peaceful ambience with fountain and classical music in the background. Great place to work or have meaningful conversation.

    Turkish coffee takes 20 minutes, but it is worth the wait.

    Order their special "Turkish" Cortado. Not on the menu. I call a Turkado. Amazing taste

    This place is super confusing. The dessert is ok, glad it's vegan, but the latte was certainly burnt. Agree it's a good place to work but the decor is so strange and off-putting. Weird vibes.

    Try the chai here. It takes 10 minutes because they hand chop the spices and boil the milk. But it is worth it! Great relaxing place to work too.

    The chai here is great: there's two kinds that are fresh-brewed and they give you a big pot. The baked goods are great too.

    You come here for quality coffee and/or a nice place to work. Espresso, cold drip and siphon coffee are all excellent.

    $4.50 for an espresso shot is a bit overpriced.

    A bit dark when seated away from the windows but good coffee, free wifi, and decent vegan pastries. Ample street parking around the corner. Plus, a cute German Shepherd snoozing in the corner!

    The kopi luwak is a fun experience! You have the whole shop to yourself and the owner gives you a ton of information on the process and how to taste it. He even gave us some cigars for the final round

    The most extensive espresso menu I have seen in Los Angeles. The Funnel Mill team executes with an exactness I have rarely seen anywhere. Sit at the bar to see them at work. Mad coffee scientists!

    Bitchiest coffee shop I've ever been to. $5 min for credit card charges, no cell phone/photography signs everywhere, and a "we reserve the right to refuse service" sign 2x bigger than the OPEN sign.

    Sadly was disappointed. The latte itself was, fine, but extremely tiny for a high price. Gluten-free raspberry chocolate dessert was dry. Nice atmosphere if looking for a place to work.

    awesome staff who are knowledgable about their beans, they make a great cold brew (ice drip in their terms) with a great chocolate truffle ground. and they make a great grind for take-home too.
