I don't go to the cool part of DTLA, that's probably why. I don't go past the Disney Concert Hall and the cathedral.

Are you a coffee drinker? I am a coffee fiend. I love it.

There are 3 really good coffee shops in DTLA. I go to those often. I like to go to Central Market.

Little Tokyo has so many good places to eat. I know all of the best spots.

There is also a cigar lounge that I like to go to.

And my favorite jazz lounge is in DTLA.

Why am I typing like this?

tl;dr, I <3 DTLA

I'm really not that big on coffee. I'll drink a good one every once in a while, but it's a habit I don't want to get into. Plus they serve that insipid wash water at work, so that probably helps. I've been spoiled by good coffee before, and it's hard to go back.

Down to try these food places you talk of, though.

Once you've been exposed to really good coffee, you can't go back to anything else. An old member here got me hooked on coffee a few years ago. At this point, I can't even imagine getting through the day without my coffee.

Making really good coffee is a pretty simple process, though. All you need are fresh beans and a few tools. You could even set up a little coffee station at your desk at work lol.

This is my favorite sushi restaurant for lunch:

Their menu is pretty traditional and affordable. I think they've added some fancy rolls for the honkeys that come, but I haven't tried any of that. I usually stick to a Chirashi bowl.

I am NOT bringing coffee equipment to work. I suppose I could steal some hot water from the Chinese ladies for the French press, but a grinder?


Take me to that sushi place. I could probably go with a coworker, but meh.

Cold brew towers are insane. There is a coffee shop (I forgot about this one, so 4 great places in DTLA) that uses this system for their iced coffee. It takes 8 hours to complete. The coffee is so flavorful.

8-hour coffee? It must cost a million billion dollars.

So assuming you can find a bottle that drips X fl. oz. of water per second, you can make your own...

I'm sure Norcal wants you, but not for the right reasons.
