Here at Handsome Coffee Roasters, the coffee is brewed by competition-winning baristas. Set in the industrial Arts district of downtown, handsome sell a limited array of coffees, which are roasted on site. Their modus operandi is a dramatically streamlined menu. they’ve laid down the law: no non-fat or low-fat dairy choices, no sweeteners, and certainly nothing that might suggest they’re not about coffee, like tea. The coffee is flawless and I order a second but I can’t help but feel like there’s too much ‘attitude’ in this joint, i prefer my coffee served with a smile.
