Barista Mike Lee
When we heard there was going to be a full time barista at our club’s headquarters, the enthusiasm was literally through the roof. Our office coffee was about to get a serious kick in the pants. Yeekai Lim aka Mike Lee who founded Cognoscenti Coffee was trained by World Barista Champion & Handsome Coffee Roaster, Michael Phillips… they met during a photo shoot, so L.A. right?
Mike is an architect turned barista in training. His pop up coffee shop grew organically out of a passion for crafting coffee. You can tell he’s put that keen eye to work while crafting his setup as well. Everything is very well laid out and his menu board system really simplifies the ordering process.
Mike is also one of the official Barista Team Members for CC x NYC (coffee common new york city). This is Coffee Common’s First Public Event in North America and is being held at A Startup Store in Chelsea from Thursday January 19th – Sunday January 22. We hope Mike let’s them know how we roast here in L.A.
When he’s not popping up in NYC or Culver City, you can find Mike @ CogCoffee inside Proof Bakery.
