The Boy & The Bear
The Boy & The Bear owner Andres Piñeros began his journey into the coffee world back in 2012 in his native Colombia, starting first as a pop-up before opening a brick-and-mortar here in LA. Now with three locations, The Boy & The Bear is where you can find 100% Colombian coffees with some modernist Scandinavian design touches. The shop’s beans are directly sourced from the farmers, with their Light & Dark espresso packing some beautiful dark chocolate and berry notes after undergoing two different roasting techniques. Enjoy it as a smooth Gibraltar, aka the perfect ratio between milk and espresso. Or if you’ve shown up with a sweet tooth, try the café con panna - a double shot with a dollop of whipped cream on top.
