Menotti’s Coffee Stop

Los Angeles

Christopher "Nicely" Abel Alameda, a seasoned barista who's clocked time behind some of Seattle and LA’s best coffee bars, runs this quick-grab cafe that's within shouting distance of Venice Beach’s drum circles. Nicely is a two-time winner of the Latte Art World Championship, so you better believe his Four Barrel Coffee drinks are topped with intricate foam designs.
