Coffee at the Coffee Commissary on Fairfax in Los Angeles
We parked on the street directly in front of Coffee Commissary and paid the meter then saw a sign that said there was free parking in the rear. Oh well, next time. :)
We had a couple of pastries for breakfast along with our coffees. I started with the Sightglass Kenya Nyeri AA Washed Process. It is described as "heavily fruited and floral in its fragrance and aroma. Flavors of fresh strawberry and peach with a lemonade-like sweetness". I remember recognizing those flavors as I sipped this delicious coffee. I loved it and was tempted to purchase a bag of it, but since I only saw one bag left on the shelf, I didn't. I wish I did!
I also got a second cup to go, but I can't remember what it was. The second coffee also tasted good, but kind of regular. I didn't notice any flavors that really popped out. It also cost less so it made sense that I felt that way.
I'll probably be visiting this coffee shop again since it's so close to the hotel that I will probably be staying at when I am in Los Angeles. It's probably a reasonable walk since it was only a four minute drive.
