This is a long overdue post about beautiful Copa Vida. Very true that my photos don’t give the credit deserved to the beauty of this coffee bar, so you really have to go visit them and see it in person. I’ve been to Copa Vida quite a few times, but mostly on late evenings when there is no natural light, all of the images below were captured at night using just available light. I do prefer shooting when there is natural light, but how could I resist not taking some photos and sharing them here.
There is so much beautiful detail at this stylish and beautifully designed coffee bar in the city of Pasadena, almost every corner has a something that gets me and makes me want to capture it. I’ve always enjoyed my visits, great coffee and tea and the awesome hospitality of Steve Chang and the very talented, Frank La and Sam Hong. This shop has a very clean feel, spacious, plenty of seating and a beautiful slow bar.
Coffee and Tea Perfection!
Their top of the line coffee and tea making equipment is gorgeous and impressive.
