Coffee Talk is a collection of super short, totally true stories from coffeehouses in Los Angeles. Think of these stories as espresso narratives - a quick jolt of something funny, surreal, or maybe even beautiful. 

The through line is the Los Angeles coffeehouse scene, where slackers routinely give each other  career advice and baristas share their ridiculously well thought out plans for surviving the zombie apocalypse. This is La La Land at is over-caffeinated best.

*I update this every Monday
** This is meant to be an ongoing, open-ended series, because pretty much whenever I get coffee, I end up getting a story too!
***I'd love to know what you think of these stories! SO PLEASE FEEL FREE TO VOTE AND COMMENT! I want to hear from you!

Five minutes later, the barista burns his hand with hot water and is rushed to emergency where Mr. Thermometer is also Mr. Emergency Room Doctor. The first words out of his mouth, "You should have used that hot water in my Cappuccino."

Wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
                              I'm definitely hungry for more.
Very funny! This reminds me of something that happened in the first episode of Scream Queens.
