Barista Lab


Barista Lab launched in 2010 when third wave coffee was hitting Los Angeles hard. There was a list of improvements we wanted to make from our first venture, Posh Portage, and we fell in love with the even more geeky, specialized pro-sumer equipment.

We attended coffee shows, volunteered at barista competitions and upped our coffee game with semi automatic espresso machines and manual brewing equipment.

Shortly after Barista Lab’s launch in 2010, we entered third party marketplaces for the first time.

We love working with local designers. Matthew Manos from A Very NiceDesign Studio helped Barista Lab with it’s identity, logo and website design. The design was featured on Under Consideration. You can read the article here.
