What we're about


Welcome to the most active and best coffee and tea social group in Los Angeles!

With a mixture of diverse backgrounds and age ranges, friendly members combined with dynamic and thought provoking conversations, our collective provides a welcomed oasis from your local big coffee and tea chain.


Maybe you are new in town and are looking for a way to familiarize yourself with the area. Or, you've lived here for a while and looking for a way to meet new people. Perhaps, you're looking for a great breakfast group to test the waters of a new place before you introduce it to your friends. Even still, you can be a friendly person that just likes new experiences. Whatever your motivations, if you enjoy meeting new people, experiencing independent coffee and tea house favorites and relish lively conversation, this group could be for you.

Our events are as diverse as our organizers and event organizers. Our members range from young 20s to wise 60s. So join us and come visit someplace new! Expand your view of what's possible with lattes and tea with The Local Coffee and Tea Scene in Los Angeles!
