What can be more romantic than a steamy, sensual, hot cup of freshly brewed coffee on a cool winter night? Well, we can’t think of any publicly appropriate mentionables at the moment, so we invite you to spend your Valentine’s Day at the LA Coffee Crawl & Throwdown. The event, hosted by LA Coffee Club, encourages lovers to visit the city’s best local coffee shops and roasters. Coffee crawlers get points for checking in to specific coffee joints to be entered into a grand giveaway. The event culminates in an afterparty from 6-10pm at Project Gallery + Espresso, where the Coffee Crawl’s throwdown will take place and the city’s best baristas will battle it out, showcasing their best latte art for bragging rights.

Below we picked out some of our favorites featured in the crawl:


Project Gallery + Espresso

Rich, creamy espresso, a large open gallery and artwork by the month’s featured artist, Ian Ross.

A hidden gem in K-town, Iota serves up coffee, spirits and delectable sweets like the B&W cake pictured below.


Graffiti Sublime Coffee 

Sleek interior design, delicious coffee & baked goods and the right music to complete the experience.


Handsome Coffee Roasters 

Good coffee accompanied by eye candy (read: handsome baristas.) How can one resist?



Love hipster-watching while you sip your cup of [strong] coffee? Intelligentsia is the spot to be.
