30 Days of Coffee: Day 7

March 8, 2015

Day 7: Tierra Mia

Another coffee roasting company on our journey can be found sprinkled about the Los Angeles area.  Tierra Mia Coffee prides itself on selecting micro batch beans and sustaining coffee farmers and their families.  Then they take those beans and roast them to flavor perfection at their many Southern and Northern California locations.  What sets Tierra Mia Coffee apart from a lot of other coffee houses is their commitment to including Latin culture in everything they do, from their coffees and pastries which are baked in-house daily, to the decor of each location.

I visited the newest member of the Tierra Mia family in Highland Park, which is a Northern area of Los Angeles.  It’s almost hidden in a residential area, but to me that just gives it more of a cozy neighborhood sentiment.  The space inside is rather small with only about three or four tables along the wall.  There is also seating outside (which is pretty normal for SoCal).  There is a pastry display with some signature items like their tres leches or pina colada muffins and horchata latte cupcakes!

Their drink menu includes it’s own set of signatures like the Coco Loco Latte, Mocha Mexicano, Cubano con Leche, and many more.  Per the recommendation by the barista and considering it was at least 80 degrees outside, I tried the Horchata Latte over ice.  It was sweet and cinnamony (new word), but to me didn’t really taste like horchata.  I would still recommend it to anyone who prefers their coffee drinks on the sweeter side though.  There is still an overabundance of drinks that I have yet to try here, and I look forward to completing the list!
