A little more than halfway through 2016 — it's not too late for an update, right? The site now lists 80 solid places for coffee around L.A. Also took care of some housekeeping things site-wide, just to clean things up and to remove references to restaurants and coffee shops that have long closed. The big changes:
Added: The Fika Company in Redondo Beach, a rather interesting and really good roaster
Added: Blue Bottle opened yet another L.A. shop, this one in the Hayden Tract
Added: Folks who remember BrewWell and its terrific Koreatown shop will be very happy to learn that it's relocated -- it's a walk-up window in Hollywood now.
Added: Demitasse has a new Hollywood shop, this one with a full kitchen, wine and beer
Removed: Single Origin, which closed at The Grove, along with Short Cake and Short Order
Added: Balcony Coffee
Added: Cognoscenti Coffee in South Park
Silver Lake + Environs
Added: Counter Culture Coffee's Training Center
Added: Twenty40, the new cafe from the folks at McCall's Meat and Fish Co.
Added: Kindness & Mischief in Highland Park
Added: Cafe de Leche's second location in Altadena
Added: Regent Specialty Coffee Bar in San Gabriel
Edited: Taza in Arcadia has moved; it's now across the street from its original spot, in the Mercedes-Benz dealership
Removed: Makai Coffee, which recently changed ownership and is now Deja Brew (which I haven't been to. The Long Beach page is woefully inadequate, I know — I don't get down there as often as I'd like.)
