“While it may seem small, the ripple effects of small things is extraordinary.”
Hello 2019! The new year is upon us! I am happy to write about a small new coffee shop that is sure to bring extraordinary eats and drinks to many this new year.
Offset Coffee opened up in Torrance, California just this December 27, 2018. The owners are two locals who simply love coffee. They wanted to share their love of coffee via opening up the only multi-roaster coffee shop in the South Bay.
Walking in, I instantly became a fan of the small and simple cafe. It definitely sets an “offset” type of mood from the hustle and bustle of a busy life. Very simple. Very basic. It’s all about taking a breather and simply enjoying the coffee here.
Their menu consists of various coffee delights ranging from drip coffee to cortado and flavored lattes. Flavored lattes are vanilla, hazelnut and lavender. They also offer cold brews, Mexican cokes and hot chocolate.
Upon my visit here, my mom and I tried the hazelnut latte and cappuccino, respectively.
The hazelnut latte was simply delightful. It had the right hint of hazelnut flavor in the cup. It was nutty, sweet and creamy and a perfect match to the pastries we would also try on this visit.
The cappuccino was also great. A perfect starter for the day with it’s rich and bold flavor.
To go along with are cups of coffee, we tried two of their fresh baked pastries. Offset’s pastries are from Bakers Kneaded. Bakers Kneaded bakes daily in Los Angeles and all of their breads are made from California sourced and grown ingredients.
First up we tried the bombolini.
Talk about heaven in a bite. These Italian doughnuts are filled with custard that simply melts in the mouth. It is no wonder these sell out almost daily at the shop.
The next pastry we tried was their almond croissants.
The almond croissants have a buttery, flaky crust topped with powdered sugar and almonds. Inside is a lovely almond paste that is simply perfection.
Trying out Offset Coffee was great way or shall I say an extraordinary way to start the new year. I cannot wait to have more “offset” days.
