(..and while we are talking about coffee in this blog, we don't actually do drip coffee).
The first thing I do when I get to any city is to try and get my bearings. I need a download on what's happening, where I shop, the best eats, and, most importantly, which coffee shops I'm going to be spending all of my time and money at. Los Angeles was no different. While I was no stranger to the city, I had been a distant friend to DTLA. This trip, however, things were going to be a bit different. I’d be calling DTLA my home for the next month so we had some discovering and adventuring to do. Naturally, we start with what's close to home. So I went for my first caffeinated adventure on the ground floor of Level South Olive. We'll start there and continue down along six coffee shops to explore for yourself next time you're downtown Los Angeles.
