Ecovillager Opens New Coffee Shop, Local Caffeine Addicts Rejoice

The heights of local commerce

Ecovillager Angel Orozco and his partners in Cafecito Orgánico have opened a new storefront at Hoover and Bellevue, just under the 101 freeway from LAEV. It’s about a 20 minute walk from here, and a 5-8 minute bike ride.

With ample patio seating and a simple operation indoors, this new coffee shop really adds to the neighborhood. I visited twice last Friday, once to meet with other ecovillagers and talk policy, and once to meet with activist friends and work on a bike project. Each time I noticed plenty of traffic through the shop, with stroller-pushing families, dogwalkers, and scruffy Silverlake dwellers all feeding their need for organic, LA-roasted coffee.

Our own Dr. Feelgood

There are tasty pastries too.
