30 Days of Coffee: Day 27

March 28, 2015

Day 27: The Conservatory for Coffee, Tea, and Cocoa

Today I ventured out west to experience how they do coffee in Culver City.  “The Conservatory”, as the locals call it, has been around for years serving up quality caffeinated drinks.  They gather green coffee beans from around the world and roast them in-house to bring out the best flavors for each type.  You can buy a bag of fresh roasted coffee, or have some right there in the shop.  All of the baristas are expertly trained to serve you a beautiful coffee drink every time.  They also offer an entire wall (literally) of loose-leaf teas.

The cocoa drinks made here are all to-order and can be tapered to your liking.  If you want it less sweet, or more spicy, all you have to do is let your barista know and it’s yours!  There are plenty of pastries and baked goods to choose from as well.  Get there early though, the small space filled up within the first hour of opening!

I was especially excited to come here not for coffee, even though the coffee is definitely something to be excited about, but I had done a wee bit of research and discovered something that sent my heart all aflutter.  Something that the textural fiend inside of me yearned for.  Something that apparently has been around for years, and I’ve just been living under bedrock.  I present to you…

The “Babyccino”!

In all it's glory

In all it’s glory

If you know me at all, you know I have a very special place in my heart for milk foam (or any foam really).  I’d contemplated many times to request a simple cup of foam just to satisfy my strange craving.  The light airiness, the tiny micro-bubbles that dance on my tongue and then disappear slowly… ahhhhh!  The babyccino was just the thing that I have been looking for!  It’s a cappuccino cup of steamed frothy milk served with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top and a spoon.  Pure heaven!
