Saturday Sippin’ || feat. Laurenly + Alfred

Two Little Birds Wander West // Laurenly + Alfreds Coffee Two Little Birds Wander West // Laurenly + Alfreds CoffeeDisclaimer :: overlook the fact that I am drinking a kombucha . . . if I didn’t already have 2 cups of coffee, that would be a coffee. Use your imagination.

You know what I absolutely love most? Coffee. You know when I absolutely love it most? In the morning. In a perfect world I would much rather roll over and grab a warm cuppa filled with almond milk + turmeric + cinnamon (mmm). Instead I roll over and grab my phone to see it filled with emails, text messages, and sometimes missed calls. I’m thoroughly convinced that people do not sleep anymore, and honestly I applaud them. If they don’t sleep, they have a couple cups of coffee (throughout the day) and move about their days as if they worked at Disneyland. If I don’t sleep, my body allows one cup of coffee, and I go about my day like I work at LAX airport on a Friday night . . . ha, yeah, you don’t want to be my friend on that day. I take the little moon sign a.k.a “do not disturb” on my iPhone very seriously. I make sure to say my prayers, turn my phone on vibrate, and click the moon so I can sleep peacefully, and everyone else can try and bug me, but they can’t. Mwahaha . . . suckers. Apple really took the whole, goodnight moon bit, seriously.

Just like sleep, I also take my coffee super seriously, and I think I can thank my brother-in-law for that. Australians are coffee snobs if you weren’t aware. Oh, by the way, my sister married an Australian if you weren’t aware of that also. I used to go about my days ordering caramel frappuccinos at Starbucks, and BLEH I honestly cannot even finish this sentence. But now, ohhhh now I have seen the light. The light that is so bright you have to close your eyes, and the only sense you have available is the sense of smell, so you breathe in deep and smell the sweet, sweet aroma of roasted organic coffee beans that surround you. How’s that for some basic 6th grade imagery?

Matcha, espresso, lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos, tea, juice, KOMBUCHA, you name it they’ve got it. Well actually I think I just named everything they have, so don’t name like fried kangaroo cause c’mon.

My first visit to Alfred’s was when it just opened on Melrose Place (lucky me!). Immediately I fell in love, like most people do, and then I tried the coffee and fell even more in love, AND THEN I met the owner and fell head over heels in love, but now he’s engaged to someone else . . . awkward. Lol, haha, that last part is a joke. However, I do love Josh (yes the owner of Alfred’s is Josh, totally confusing I know) and he is a brilliant human. He has taken what could have been such a small thing, and expanded it into a headache, actually multiple headaches, BUT a well equipped, moneymaking machine . . . with {BONUS} good coffee headache, nonetheless.

I bring ALL my friends to this glorious place. It’s like Disneyland for coffee and doesn’t cost $1,000!! If you live in the LA area or are planning to visit the LA area, you must have coffee at Alfred Coffee + Kitchen. West Hollywood, Studio City, Brentwood, In the Alley . . . basically everywhere BUT Newport Beach (ongoing joke), so take your pick! Even my koala brother-in-law likes it, and that says something . . . or nothing, same same. Just drink the coffee, and then do the things. OH! And if you ever see Josh, tell him Makenzie says hi, and she’s waiting for her Newport Beach location . . . still . . . and if you forget, no worries. I text him almost every day reminding him anyway (another joke . . . kinda).
