Added: Verve Coffee Roasters, which opened its second shop in Los Angeles on Melrose Avenue
Deleted: Field Trip, which ended its run at The Farmer's Kitchen :(
Mid-City / Mid-Wilshire
Added: Blue Bottle, which opened its third location in L.A. in Beverly Grove.
Added: Hermano's Coffee

Updated: De Cafe Baristas, which was serving Four Barrel and Herkimer when it opened and is now roasting its own beans.
Updated: Copa Vida, which is now roasting its own beans.
San Fernando Valley / Santa Clarita Valley
SFV: Compania de Cafe is closed. Temporarily, I'm hoping.
SCV: House Roots's pop-up shop is closed. Their coffee lab in Granada Hills will stay open — coffee hours are Saturdays from 9 to 5..
