COFFEE OF THE MONTH – JANUARY 2012: Handsome Coffee Roasters
Founder of Handsome Coffee Roasters & World Barista Champion
Michael Phillips introduces the LA Coffee Club’s January Coffee of The Month selection… This coffee from Handsome Roasters, San Sebastian, originates from the Municipality of La Plata, Department of Huila, Colombia – this Caturra varietal gives tastes of Graham, brown sugar, honey, clementine, with a hint of floral.
We will make amazing coffee the way we think it should be made. Full stop.
Our way may not be for everyone, and that’s okay: we’re not making coffee for everyone…we’re making coffee for you. For those who value craftsmanship and quality over convenience and cost – we’re your huckleberry.
THE 3 SIMPLE PILLARS
At Handsome, hospitality isn’t a commitment, it’s a core value. It’s not something we strive for, it is something ingrained into our genes that we couldn’t avoid if we tried.
We believe that great coffee should be simple, accessible, and amazing. The story wasn’t written just for the insiders. Accessibility doesn’t mean dumbing down coffee by offering too many options, selling out-of-season coffees or roasting darker than we prefer simply because there is demand for it. We’re kicking the stool out from under the pretension that makes enjoying specialty coffee difficult. Our menu is clear, concise and limited to excellence.
We are three world-class professionals focused on one thing. Coffee is pretty much it for us. We believe in what we source, what we roast, and what we prepare. This means we might not have as many options in our coffee bar as you find in a lot of other places, but the ones we have are stellar.
We’re going to make great coffee and be nice to you, and we promise: You’re going to love it.
