Hopefully this post is allowed. I'm looking for some small roasters in the Los Angeles area. I'm actually not trying to purchase bags for myself, but I work at a small store and we carry a pretty good coffee selection, but I like to add a few more local offerings to the shelves. Any LA roasters you guys can recommend?
We carried their beans for a while, and they gave me a few samples. I could not get a decent cup from any of them. (Although my skills have been completely garbage lately).

I haven't tried their coffee for a while, but Compelling used to be pretty good.

Have you tried offset in el Segundo?
Alana's is good. Also Menotti's
Lab is one that I have been trying to get for a few months. I believe it's a language barrier, but when I've reached out about wholesale they pretty much blow me off.wallaro7 wrote:Lab Coffee and Roasters
I need to try some lab roasts as my buddy lives a block away.
Alana's was good and it was a pretty good price but I think I sort of pissed off the owner, so he stopped delivering to us. I've never heard of Menotti's but I'll check them out, thanks.wallaro7 wrote:Alana's is good. Also Menotti's
