Jonathan Yang, Matt Chung, and Cody Wang started Thank You Coffee in 2020 with a pop-up inside Paper Please on Gin Ling Way, focusing on bottled lattes and delivering complimentary beverages to frontline medical workers. The trio joined Paper Please in moving to a higher profile space on nearby Hill Street. At their tiny back bar, a red La Marzocco Linea Mini espresso machine and beans from roasters like House Roots and Be Bright help inform signature espresso drinks like You’re Welcome Latte, made with lapsang souchong smoked black tea syrup (made with smoked black tea from Fujian, China), chicory pecan bitters, and oat milk. Yang describes their Five Spice Latte, featuring Chinese five-spice bolstered cardamom and chile flakes, as tasting like “pumpkin spice meets pho.” Largwa provides cookies and more unique items like corndog muffins topped with pork floss. Thank You Coffee also collaborated with Pasadena’s CAR Artisan Chocolate on an exclusive white chocolate and hojicha bar. Thank You Coffee’s owners have long-awaited expansion plans for Anaheim.
