Cafe Dulce Pop/Hold Up Coupons and Deals
Scout Notes: Bars generally don't boast just one brand of beer, so why would a coffee shop just boast one roaster for beans? Don't let your brain explode from the question just yet—multi roaster Cafe Dulce is here to drop some tasty science for your mouth and your mind. "Costa Rican beans roasted in Michigan are gonna taste different than Costa Rican beans roasted in San Francisco," notes James Choi, owner of Cafe Dulce in Little Tokyo and it's pop-up downtown on 11th Street. Choi says there's a good reason why directly sourced roasters usually taste better. "They buy in smaller lots, which usually means better quality beans." And better beans means a roaster doesn't have to mask low quality by roasting dark, which is often the case (and also why your drip coffee from Starbucks can taste like your sipping on a burnt boot). Not so at the pop-up. This scout had a latte there and it straight up tasted like caramel when no caramel had been added. But if sweet's your deal, try the dulce latte, which is carefully sweetened with condensed milk. Try to shake that habit. Now more about this pop-up, which, if you don't visit, you're an unfortunate fool. The atmosphere is a thoughtful treasure—the tables and crate stools were made by Dulce brand manager Sam Hong and his Dad. Additionally, the artwork in the pop-up features local artists and is curated by Hold Up Art in Little Tokyo. But the arts not just on the walls. when you get a pour-over with the remainder served to you in a glass Mason jar, or a cappuccino poured by a seasoned barista, you'll realize there's art in your cup, too. Menu Highlights: Pour Over Coffee Latte Hours: Monday - Friday, 7 am - 5 pm Weekends vary
