an L.A. gift story

We get asked a lot, how & where did you find that?

… well, what if we told you?

We love to tell stories- so here’s our L.A. gift story about a recent (rad) gift that went out to a customer.

gifts made in Los Angeles

Made in L.A. gift featuring pour-over by Gina Zycher of Glitter Mountain, bean-to-bar chocolate from Letterpress Chocolate, a DTLA candle by Flores Lane, and coffee by local roaster Groundwork Coffee.

First off – hopefully Groundwork‘s delicious & locally roasted coffee is not a secret.

They were my (Jen’s) coffee shop within walking distance for years. I love that you get a free cup of coffee every time you buy beans – if you’re nice, they will give you a hemp milk latte.

Our friend, Anne Loves Coffee More introduced us to Gina from Glitter Mountain after we accidentally borrowed (kind-of-stole?!) the coffee pour-over she gave her.

We’ve never missed our 0ld Cuisinart Coffee Maker – so for people that REALLY love coffee (like us!), we will obsessively gush over Glitter Mountain for years.

CHOCOLATE! ¬†Who doesn’t love it?

Pretty sure it was Meredith from Indie Jams that introduced us to Letterpress.

We’ve learned more about the entire chocolate making process from him & randomly, years ago we stayed just down the dirt road from one their future cacao farms in Guatemala.

She boogies, she spills & makes a mess in her studio.
