For nearly 25 years (an eternity in Los Angeles time), Groundwork has been a homegrown coffee and tea destination, handcrafting Angelenos’ favorite drinks from the finest ingredients. Our borderline-obsessive commitment to each cup and every customer — in warm, inviting cafés that capture the flavor of their neighborhoods — is a fundamental part of our story. Come to think of it, it is our story. Groundwork rose from the sands of Venice Beach, CA, as a single coffee and tea shop (complete with a custom-built, small-batch roaster) that also sold rare and used books. Local demand soon became so great, we began roasting 24/7 and wisely got out of the book business.

Flash-forward a few years: Our single-roaster operation morphed into one of the first certified organic coffee roasters in California, not to mention the largest in L.A. Our sustainable, relationship-based, organic coffee sourcing set an industry standard, as did our solar-powered, low-emissions roasting technology. Today, we have seven café locations around town and distribute our coffees and teas throughout the U.S. Not too shabby.
