About Tierra Mia Coffee
The idea of specialty-roasted coffee with a Latin flare seemed pretty unique, so I took a second to visit Tierra Mia Coffee on my way to the airport from DrupalCon in LA. I wasn’t exactly sure what I’d find, but I knew the experience would be a bit different than what I’m used to.
I’ve ordered countless pour-overs and drip coffees to get a feel for a roaster’s work. It usually works out well because the roaster has planned for the beans to be used to brew a black cup of coffee. The thing is, a coffee company specializing in Latin coffee roasts beans to be made into a drink like a Cubano con Leche, not a black cup of drip coffee.
Why am I mentioning all of this? Because, the cup of black drip coffee I got from Tierra Mia Coffee was unremarkable. Had I ordered a Mocha Mexicano, Horchata Latte, or Cubano con Leche, I’m pretty sure it would have been incredible. If I had only read this information from their website prior to visiting…
We roast our own coffee on our 1957 Probat roaster and utilize La Marzocco equipment and Mazzer grinders to create artisan espresso.
Unfortunately, I’ll just have to wait until the next time I’m in LA, and hope that after such a silly mistake, they’ll let me come back to try the real deal. In the meantime, I learned a very important lesson—when trying something new, try something new. 🙂
