Rose Park Roasters Coffee Bar

Rose Park Roasters burst onto the caffeine scene in 2010, just as L.A. was starting to get its own specialty coffee scene, thanks to a lead largely taken by Intelligentsia when it opened in Silver Lake in 2007. Andrew Phillips, then a roaster for coffee boss Martin Dietrich at his Costa Mesa–based Kean Coffee, decided to pair up with design and business friend Nathan Tourtellotte to offer something that, at the time, didn’t exist outside True Beans Roasters in Long Beach: a local roaster dedicated to specialty beans. That simplicity and comfort comes in tangible form in the new coffee shop, the first brick-and-mortar that Rose Park can call its own. Tourtellotte and Phillips have gutted the space, eschewing N?tz’s bohemian, DIY aesthetic in favor of clean, contemporary design elements.
