After three days (last week, plus yesterday) of pure Starbucks in greater Los Angeles, I finally hit up an indie shop, from this list....

Blacktop is exclusive to Sighglass, and while I always enjoy the wariety that multi-roaster coffeehouses offer, I have yet to be disappointed by Sightglass.

Even batch-brewed (a first for me, with this roaster) Sightglass' roast is so strong that I fully enjoyed my cup.

Another couple of firsts, paying $4 for batch-brewed coffee, and parking meters that start operating at 6 AM!!!
