Hi. Can anyone recommend a local coffee roaster in West Hollywood, Los Angeles? I like to brew within 2 weeks of roasting, and cannot locate a roaster I might buy from on a regular basis.

Goodness, you're in a fairly rich coffee town! You've got Intelligentsia, Handsome, Lamill, and more.

to add to what steve said, there's also Trystero http://trysterocoffee.com/  i believe he is a member here on CG and on HB.  Some of their beans are available at Demitasse in little tokyo.

you can also find other roaster's beans throughout LA.  I know spring for coffee  in downtown la has beans from stumptown, ritual and blue bottle.  Most of what they have should be within 5 days of roast.  

Ive heard good things about Conservatory for Coffee and Tea in culver city.  They roast in-house.  

In OC, there's Kean Coffee and Portola Coffee Labs.

Seems like any large city on the west coast has a plethora of roasters.

David?  No offense, but how hard have you looked?!?!?!

Over 90 98 percent of the places on this "List of our Favorite Roasters" roast-to-order and ship either the same or the following day.  That means that I -- living in the San Francisco Bay area -- receive my coffee beans delivered to my door 48-72 hours post-roast.  

You do have a wide variety of roasters from which to choose (alphabetically):

Handsome Coffee Roasters (Downtown/Art District)
Intelligentsia Coffee (Silverlake)
Kéan Coffee (Newport Beach, Tustin)
Klatch Roasting (Upland, San Dimas, Rancho Cucamonga, etc.)
West Coast Roasting Co. (West LA)

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

Also highly recommended -- and roasting-to-order and ships the same day -- are (alphabetically):

Caffè Fresco (Port Griffith, PA)
Four Barrel Coffee (San Francisco, CA)
Metropolis Coffee Company (Chicago, IL)
Red Bird Coffee (Bozeman, MT)
Ritual Roasters (San Francisco, CA)
Sightglass Coffee (San Francisco, CA)
Velton's Coffee Roasting (Everett, WA)
Verve Coffee Roasters (Santa Cruz, CA)
. . . among MANY others!

Cheers,
Jason

Found this while looking for some local roasters...Thanks for the Klatch referral! It's pretty close to home. I used to go to Intelligenstia when I lived in Silver Lake and I am excited to try something new.
