Bougie Beverage Review #3: Alfred Coffee

Well, it's been a while since I wrote a beverage review. My apologies, but things are super busy at work—and yes, I will spare you the details. Anyway, I'm switching things up and I'm going to give you my review of Alfred Coffee, a very popular coffee chain in LA. A lot of people visit the WeHo location, which is a known hot spot for skinny "Instagram models" who love doing impromptu photoshoots with their coffees and #OOTDs. Seriously, I have seen groups of fashionable women take their big EOS cameras out and start posing beside one of the many Instagrammable spots.

PACKAGING: Alfred Coffee is known for their drink sleeves. Disney Style and Minnie Mouse did a recent collaboration with them, and it was actually really cute, as you can see from the photo above. Not that I've started a mini collection of sleeves that I proudly display on my desk, but you know...  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (Yes, I did just use the pre-emoji shrug guy).

PRICE: They have a $10 latte. (This particular chai was $7, I think).

TASTE: Their drinks are pricy, but they're actually really good. They have coffee, nitro coffee, nitro chai (my favorite), and matcha.

BOUGIE-NESS: They proudly display their $10 latte. 

OVERALL THOUGHTS: I love Alfred's, it's very LA. Sure, it's expensive, but I don't care, it's good quality caffeine.

GOOP APPROVED? Yes! Yet another four out of five Goopies! I only took off one Goop because I see hipsters at the Silverlake location.
