Screen Shot 2016-01-13 at 11.27.14 AMGentle Brew in Long Beach is my absolute favorite. Every single day I drink their coffee. My coffee process at home is complicated, starting with a Rancilio Rocky grinder, pulling shots with my Breville Infuser (soon to be replaced with a hacked Rancilio Silvia with a PID because I am a restless nerd). Yes, I used non-pressurized portafilters. What do you think I am, a coffee wimp? But it all comes down to freshly roasted beans. Gentle Brew beans don’t disappoint. They are perfect.

Yes, I love coffee and I love Gentle Brew. I try to go there as many mornings as I can; even after drinking a cup at home. SERIOUSLY, If you live in the Long Beach, love coffee and haven’t tried this place, you are nuts.
