Everyone could use a little coffee right now. This is a confusing time for everyone, and small and local businesses have been particularly affected. The COVID-19 lockdown has caused many LA businesses to close, but that doesn’t stop you from craving your morning cup (or three!). If you’re social distancing and wondering how you’re going to survive without your coffee fix (and also wanting to support some local businesses!), check out the list below for great local roasters that deliver their beans! Stay home and sign up for a subscription, or just order a bag of beans when you need it!
Demitasse has always supported other local businesses, and their commitment to community hasn’t wavered in the wake of COVID-19. Known for their unique flavor profiles, Demitasse’s coffee beans are of fantastic quality. Need something stronger? They offer an espresso bean subscription as well! You can currently get free shipping on any order (no minimum!).
