I had my first pour over coffee recently at Intelligentsia (who has a location just around the corner from the gorgeous Hourglass headquarters.) Have you had one? Not that this is a breaking news or anything, it’s not a new method by any means. But wow, it was the best cup of coffee I’ve ever had. It was also probably the most expensive ($7 with the cookie.) But it was worth every single penny. As was the cookie! The Huffington Post agrees, they were just named on the list of the best coffee in LA.
Read more about the pour over method at Serious Eats. And if you’re not near one of Intelligentsia’s locations, order their beans and make it at home!
So, grab a cup and read on for this week’s Lipstick League…
