30 Days of Coffee: Day 26

Day 26: Healing Coffee Roasters

Healing Coffee is a small neighborhood shop in the Mid-Wilshire area of LA. They roast small batches of beans from all over in-house to offer some great tasting cups.  I think this might be the best Ethiopian coffee that I’ve every tried!  But what sets this coffee shop apart is their focus on educating people on all things coffee.  They have classes for everything from becoming barista, to a roaster,  an appraiser, and more!

The owner of HCR travels the world doing extensive research to find quality coffee beans to bring back to their shop and to distribute wholesale. The baristas are all certified coffee appraisers too.  That’s pretty impressive!

In addition to classes, you can have an Ethiopian coffee ceremony experience here. It’s a traditional practice that is done to welcome guests into one’s home or for a special occasion. The ceremony traditionally runs for about 2-3 hours and includes the roasting and grinding of the coffee beans and 12 cups of coffee being served to honor the guests.  It’s definitely something I’d like to go back and try!
