At Leimert Park’s Hot & Cool Cafe, owner Tony Jolly is working to build a community through coffee. Originally from Washington D.C., Jolly works with farmers directly to increase their visibility in the specialty coffee marketplace, like a 50-acre, woman-owned farm in Ethiopia whose beans he now imports to their storefront on Degnan Blvd. In addition to lattes, breakfast burritos, and house-blended loose leaf teas, Hot & Cool has also partnered with the non-profit MISLA, to create a youth program that provides training and mentorship in tech, media, and design.
