Fantastic coffee

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... read 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.

Now don't get me wrong, I had a perfectly fine cup of coffee, but the best? No. Atmosphere a bit sterile for my taste, but I do like supporting small shops.

I had a very good hot chocolate and great scone. Nice atmosphere and great location to stop for a snack while your shopping.

Exceptional venue in the strip mall with the centrally located outlet stores a great ski-supplies place. Coffee is awesome, though food choices are limited to some (very good) baked goods.

I liked other decor as soon as I saw it thru the windows. Minimalist and cool. Very personable young male staff. I had a decaf mocha topped with a tea leaf foamed art. To top it off, it tasted smooth and not scalding hot. Only open for 1year, so I can't wait to see how they evolve on future ski... More

The look and feel of this place made me hopeful. But being surrounded by amazing coffee in SF (Blue Bottle, Four Barrel, Philz) made their coffee truly disappointing. To top it off, the teenage workers had annoyed/snobby attitudes which made the cappuccino terrible in more ways than one. They have potential to be great - maybe if they took some... More
