But First, Coffee Shops in LA

Los Angeles is a city that’s always hustling and bustling. With so many people on the go all of the time, it creates a need for something to help us get through the day. And we all know what that is.

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee.

Whether it’s to get you through your Monday morning, to help you write a paper for a class you’re in or even to pair with your Sunday brunch, it’s always the perfect accessory to any busy day. But where can you find great coffee? To answer your question, I’ve narrowed all of the coffee shops in LA down to five.

Alfred {Coffee + Kitchen} – West Hollywood

alfred-coffee

Alfred {Coffee + Kitchen} is perfection for any coffee lover. The interior is an Instagram haven; their slogan and quotes on the walls deserve praise, and the service is always incredibly friendly. With a myriad of seating options inside and outside, this is the perfect spot for a weekend hangout spot. They have pressed juice available in the fridge and pints of McConnell ice cream in their freezer if you like the variety. There’s also a farmers market on the same block that lasts til 2pm on Sundays! Alfred’s is the perfect way to start your Sunday mornings. Since discovering this place, I’ve never had a disappointing cup of coffee.

Philz Coffee – Santa Monica

1200

The ambiance/atmosphere of Philz Coffee will remind you of San Francisco, it’s chill and relaxed. Even the ordering is something you won’t normally be accustomed to. As you walk in you’ll see a baffling menu of different blends. While there is a description board of the blend descriptions, you go straight up to the counter and if you let the barista know it’s your first time, the barista will find out what you like and hopefully give you the best coffee you’ve ever had! They individually brew every single cup of coffee according to your preferences. It really personalizes the experience and makes you happy knowing that you got exactly what you wanted. I highly recommend the “mint mojito coffee,” it’s hands-down one of the best cups of coffee I’ve ever had.

Stumptown Coffee Roasters – Downtown

L.A’s coffee that will most likely punch you in the face at first sip. No, seriously though, Stumptown packs a punch and let me tell you a story of love at first sip. The second you arrive to Stumptown there is already a line around the building because of how good it is. Once you walk in, you get to personally see how they brew the coffee and there are private tasting rooms if you want to enhance your experience. The interior here is very urban and industrial, which definitely gives it a different vibe than your typical coffee shop. I may be biased, but Stumptown will always be one of my favorites – especially the cold brew.

Coffee Commissary – Hollywood

It’s hard not to love the Coffee Commissary – it’s a perfect place to meet up with friends, study, or just hang out and relax. They also have locations all over SoCal. They have STRONG and good quality coffee and the staff is always incredibly kind and really personable. You’ll notice a very limited menu of just the basics, but it’s the basics made flawlessly. The ambiance of this place is beautiful. Modern and industrial meets sophisticated coffee shop. This is my top spot for coffee or espresso in the Hollywood area. Also check out their Burbank location!

Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea – Venice

Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea has a very organic and natural concept. The workers are dancing along to the music, everyone is sitting around talking or doing work, and the shop is very bright from all the natural light coming through the windows. If you go through the front door and walk through an alley like street it’ll lead you to the front door in which you stand in line to order your coffee. It’s really cute because there’s little plant vines around the walls and the whole neighborhood is colorful and filled with street art. The vibe here is so alive and organic. They have a great selection of pastries in the front to accompany your coffee… but forewarning, your total can get a bit expensive since the price of a coffee and pastry is a bit steep. What can you expect though? We’re in LA & the quality of the coffee is amazing!

Get out there and check out some of these awesome coffee shops. After all, in LA, coffee is king.

    you shield this increase.

  15. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the website listed below with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. For sin is the transgression of the law. We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
