Best coffee I've had in a while. The vanilla latte with almond milk is phenomenal. Don't ruin it by adding sugar...the natural flavors from the espresso, vanilla and nutty zing from the almond milk is perfection...and made with a little "love".

Coffee snobs and Europeans alike will be more than pleased at the coffee offered here. Creamy espresso, Latte Art, Cold Brew, they even offer raw milk upon request. So pleased to have this bit of culture and excellence in Mammoth!

I just can't walk past this store without going in for a cup of coffee--you can smell fresh ground coffee out the door and into the parking lot that just pulls you in. It's usually a bit of a wait since each drink is hand-crafted but worth it. Modern decor is a little too sterile for my taste but I... More

I had high hopes for this coffee house given the rave reviews on TripAdvisor. Unfortunately, my mocha was only average. It was made with powdered chocolate and overpoweringly chocolately. They do serve drip coffee, which seemed to attract the largest purchasers when I was there. Also, I've noticed a trend in Northern California where they only serve one size of... More

This is a great place for those that enjoy great coffee! The decor is simple, clean and sophisticated like the coffee. There was a group of five us so we had to wait for everyone's drinks, but it was worth it. Each cup of coffee is handcrafted and that takes a few minutes, but who doesn't need to take a... More

Beautiful and modern, this place is a breath of fresh air in Mammoth. Because I'm vegan, I normally order soy lattes and they don't carry soy but do carry almond milk. I gave it a try and wow....the flavor, the heart shape in the foam and the richness was unbelievable!!! This place is a must.

Great coffee, little slow because each cup is hand crafted, so it is nice to slow down and enjoy it..

This spot has the best coffee in Mammoth that I tried. It is fresh ground pour over coffee made upon order. There is no burnt taste. People are generally use to the burnt and over-brewed coffee rather than the true flavour. The atmosphere is minimalistic, but that is fine with me. Great wood furnishings. Staff was friendly and nice. Do... More

Stopped in for morning coffee. Interesting place, a little bit stark and open but the coffee was very good.
