Although grabbing a morning cup of coffe may be a ritual that’s necessary to begin your day, a quick stop for that steaming latte is nothing special—right? Not so if you’re familiar with Handsome Coffee Roasters, headquartered in Downtown Los Angeles! Actress Holley Fain kindly agreed to show us what it’s like to spend a morning at the specialty coffee company. Founded by three bona fide coffee experts who put more thought into their beans and roasts than we put into our outfits, Handsome Coffee Roasters boasts a refined drink menu consisting of only the best brews—plus a friendly vibe that Holley loves!

  • You can find Handsome Coffee Roasters’ beans in coffee shops throughout the U.S., but visiting their headquarters requires a trip to Downtown LA.

  • Says Holley: “It’s obvious that everyone who works here really cares about what they do. Very friendly, very good at their job—a perfect combination!”

  • Handsome Coffee offers only carefully selected, thoughtfully roasted, in-season coffee beans, which makes for a perfect brew.

  • Holley, who has appeared on Broadway and in TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy, loves Handsome Coffee’s warm, hip atmosphere.

  • According to Holley, “It’s the perfect place to bring a book or the paper and just set up shop for a couple of hours in the morning.”

  • Founders Tyler Wells, Michael Phillips and Chris Owens, tarted Handsome Coffee with the intention of serving only the best drinks available, rather than a huge variety of lackluster flavors.
