Demitasse Cafe

Downtown coffee fiends are already checking out Demitasse Cafe, which opened Monday in Little Tokyo. The beans are those roasted by Equator Coffees, such as Sidama Ardi from Ethiopia. Local roaster Coffee Bean's Papua New Guinea are on the coffee menu this month too. An "aroma bar" lets customers smell the beans before choosing. Coffee is brewed by individual cup via siphon or Clever dripper. To pair with one's coffee: Compartes chocolates and pastries and cookies from Compartes, Jin Patisserie and FarmShop.
