You guys, I’m going to have to just dedicate an entire post [edit: …dedicate an entire sub-tab] to this coffee shop because I am a regular here and basically obsessed with it. When I say I’m a regular, I mean every single day – for a while, even twice a day. You’ll probably see posts often from this place and even on my Whoa! That’s Personal tab, because my coffee addiction has led to relationships with the employees and owner that have transferred into my personal life! But since this blog is just kickin’ off, let me just catch you up with a whole post of pictures from there. Brace yourself. There are several and I don’t even take pictures of every single time that I go. But first, let me introduce you to the love of my life: James Coffee Co.
This retro coffee shop is owned by head-roaster, David James Kennedy. This sight for sore eyes and former guitarist/keyboardist for Angels and Airwaves is impossible to miss. Just look for any of the following: flannel, or a blue shirt with a number on it, a hat, often some shades, incredibly long hair, incredibly tall, and tattoo sleeves. I don’t know… you can’t miss him. What started as a wholesale roasting business from home became one of the best coffee shops in San Diego that is growing tremendously in popularity. It’s located in the outer corner of Little Italy’s, India St. The space is so large that other small shops also share the space. The coffee these people craft is expertly sourced, expertly roasted, and expertly brewed. I can’t speaking highly enough of not only the shop and its owner but the whole team. I’ve grown to sincerely love their baristas! (whether that’s reciprocated; not sure). Take a stroll with me down my James Coffee Co. memory lane:
