The coffee geek contingent of our readership has been buzzing about the new roastery and cafe from Lofty Coffee, located just across the street from their very popular original location which opened back in 2011.
Lofty Coffee's Encinitas Roasting Works is now open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. While the first cafe's menu of coffee drinks includes lattes infused with cardamom or homemade salted caramel, the new spot's drink list is much more pared down, just straight-forward espresso drinks and two types of cold brew (Kyoto-method and nitro); there is no takeaway coffee, so you've got to sit down and enjoy your cup.
There are also new pastries, made in house, including their version of affogato - an organic chocolate brownie topped with house made Straus Creamery vanilla bean gelato and a shot of espresso.
