Most likely you already know that a few months ago Oakland-based Blue Bottle Coffee acquired Handsome Coffee Roasters, the transition from Handsome to Blue Bottle began then, and it is now almost complete. We’ll now have Blue Bottle in Downtown Los Angeles, and yes I am looking forward to visit it soon.
I want to share a few images as a good bye to Handsome and as a thank you for their kindness every time I had the opportunity to stop by for coffee. I tried to visit Handsome Coffee often during their first year of business, but honestly I rarely visited during the last year and a half. The images below are from various occasions between 2012 to 2013, in no particular order. Moments that I captured at their pre-preview when they were serving coffee thru the back door before construction was finished, their preview party, their first months, and their one year anniversary party. Thank you for the good coffee times Handsome Coffee Roasters.
