I'll be going around with a friend again on the 23rd. I seem to remember someone mentioning a place other than Intelli in the Venice area but I don't remember where or what it was.

Looking for suggestions. I'm going to try to drag her down to the get together Sunday. She lives in Bakersfield, one of California's Coffee Deserts.

So any ideas are welcome, 3 wave the best, but will take good second wave as well. Thanks.

 
The world needs more outstanding coffee.

There is Cielo in SM
http://sm.espressocielo.com/

I think they use 49th Parallel beans.
Only been there once, shot was OK.  I heard somewhere they are a little hit and miss, depending on who's working.

I hardly go out for shots, so don't worry about only going there once.  I have only been to Intelly a few times.

Venice Grind can be good.. we use Stumptown and are usually quite good in the early part of the day, and striving to get more consistency overall.  It is on Venice Blvd. between Centinela and Grandview..

Espresso Cielo in Palm Springs is exceptional. Only been to the SM store once, and it was very good. 49th Parallel served at both locations.

You were on my list, but my friend was floating by the time we got back that way, so I will save you until next time.

I know this is already past your travel schedule but another option in Venice for future reference is Groundworks Coffee.  Everything is organic and they roast their own.

I would like to echo Groundworks coffee as well, but it may be a little confusing to find the first time ;)
