LAMILL: Silver Lake
Just opened on January 11th, LAMILL (LA MILL) is a gourmet café from the Alhambra based beanery which supplies everyone from Katsuya to Bastide.
Designed after a mid-century, upscale clubhouse (vintage club chairs, 1800s brass chandelier), this gourmet café offers Silverlakeians a cool new place to have a cup-o'-joe, or more.
The company is open about their coffee obssesion. LAMILL is committed to sourcing the Earth in an effort to produce the world’s best cup of coffee. They only use coffee beans that are grown between the Tropics of Capricorn and Cancer. For those of you, who slept through geography, "imagine a wide band around the Earth’s equator. Known as the Bean Belt, it boasts rich soil and mild temperatures with plenty of rain and shaded sun - an ideal climate for growing coffee." Also interesting, their espresso's are served at an exact 165 degrees.
LAMILL opens at 6am with pastries, and starts slinging full breakfast at 8.
