For all you coffee afficianados- here in SoCal - we have a Coffee Fest.

 

Coffee fest promises a blend of caffeine, cuisine, more

By Sandra Barrera » sbarrera@scng.com »@sandrabarrera18 on Twitter

Coffee is not just for mornings.

 

Rather, the three-day Los Angeles Coffee

Festival, which kicks off today at the Magic

Box @ The Reef in downtown L.A., shows that a cup of Joe has a host of roles to play in modern life.

“We’re reflecting the wholeness of the coffee scene,” said Jeffrey Young, who’s responsible for bringing coffee festivals to London, New

York and now L.A.

 

Programming at this inaugural event is tailored to coffee geeks, foodies and culture fans.

More than a hot cup

Yes, a big perk of the festival is free, unlimited coffee. But it isn’t the only one.

There are also rich, indulgent, creamy cocktails

in the Coffee Cocktail Bar and Latte Art Live, where latte artists create drinks with milk and espresso.

“That’s going to be extraordinary,” Young said, adding he’s tried it. “It is a skill that can be taught, but I’m probably better at putting on festivals than latte art.”

Later, coffee mixologists take over Latte Art Live to mix up coffee cocktails and freestyle.

“Coffee cocktails are a phenomenal after-hours way of making coffee more exciting and inviting,” Young said.

But festivalgoers can’t thrive on caffeine alone.

And so they’ve invited into The Kitchen for demonstrations, workshops and talks headed up by giants of L.A.’s culinary scene.

L.A. restaurants Triniti, Bluestone Lane, Lately and Pollen will be serving up a festival menu.

Songs and cinema to sip coffee to

In addition to coffee and food components, thefestival incorporates entertainment in the

form of local acts taking the main stage courtesy of the Coffee Music Project, and coffee-inspired films screen in The Movie Room.

There’s also a visual art component. Dubbed the Coffee Art Project, it features original artwork that represents coffee or the coffee shop experience through painting, drawing, photography, film, design, sculpture and conceptual art.

“It’s an exploration of coffee that this festival tries to highlight,” Young said. “We’re exploring this whole world of coffee and taking it to another level.”

The Los Angeles Coffee Festival aims to bridge the gap between coffee and cocktail culture.
