TASTE IT LA: A Caffeinated Accident @ Cafecito Organico
TASTE IT LA: Cafecito Organico's non-fat latte
I took the Rover to get serviced HERE (ask for Leo) and after I was disappointed to find there was nothing to eat within walking distance to try something new for you guys I was informed that there was a coffee shop located diagonally across the street and although coffee was not my first desire I decided it would curb the craving a bit to endure the wait while my car was checked out.
I think Cafecito Organicos rivals Intellegentsia in smooth flavor but the interior is tiny and dingy and could absolutely be (easily) better maintained, (I visited their N. Hoover location.) One side of this tiny room holds a counter for the coffee/register/display which the coffee machines & barista reside behind and there is another counter on the opposing wall for accoutrements after you pay. They have wi-fi but you have to sit outside (which is ok on a clear day) at any of the tiny wrought iron tables strewn about outside. Irregardless of the dingy interior I hesitantly ordered a non-fat latte to go (which comes standard with 2 shots) from the barista and surprisingly the coffee was worth the aesthetic risk. Cafecito Organico boasts sustainable practices, chemical free crops and they roast their beans located in limited quantities which are available for purchase at either of their stores or on the weekends at their farmers market locations. They offer several in house blends which are all available to order per cup & you can purchase any of their bagged beans to-go.
A unexpectedly delicious accident and I would definitely make this my morning go-to cup of coffee. Smooth and delicious and perfect for the Rover-wait if your in the area.
