Los Angeles mag's Eat blog has the skinny (or is it venti?) on Lamill Coffee Boutique's Free Coffee Day on Tuesday, June 24.
That's right -- free coffee all day Tuesday at Lamill, which is celebrating six months in L.A.
"We are very grateful for the outpouring of support we have received from the Silver Lake neighborhood since we opened in January," owner Craig Min says, "and this is our way of saying 'thank you' to the community."
LAMILL will also be hosting a charity, Bikes to Rwanda, in support of the coffee growing communities in the country. Coffee production is the main crop grown in Rwanda, and it nearly ceased after 1994 due to a protracted civil war in the region. As production started up again a few years ago, growers were asked by visiting, grateful coffee purveyors what was needed most to help their communities recover, and the answer was "bicycles."
Other festivities on Free Coffee Day will include an opportunity to "Meet the Roasters," a special area where visitors will be able to meet with some of LAMILL's coffee roasters, taste samples and learn some of LAMILL's trade secrets that make it one of the top coffee roasters in the country. Also featured with be an area to "Talk About Tea," where guests can learn more about LAMILL's exclusive tea company, Sungarden Specialty Tea.
Free Coffee Day goes on all day on June 24, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Lamill is located at 1636 Silver Lake Blvd. in Silver Lake.
