Title Translation: “A Maru Day”.
(*Hint hint: The Korean word for ‘day’ is ‘Haru’ and it rhymes with Maru!)

We wanted to start off the launch of our blog with one of our favorite places in all of Los Angeles, the one and only Maru Coffee.

Maru Coffee
 is hands down, the coffee shop to be at in the Los Feliz area. The minimal aesthetic, airy vibe, friendly service, and good quality coffee all goes into what makes Maru such a lovely place. You can also find Portland-based Notary Ceramics‘ mugs all over the shop, which are what the drinks are served in.

Started up by co-founders Jacob Parc and Joonmo Kim, Maru Coffee came about in late September 2016. We first discovered Maru Coffee while they did a soft opening last summer in the area, and we’ve both been in love with the space ever since.

Call us a little biased, but we might also be more drawn to Maru Coffee because of the Korean name as well. Truly sticking to its name, “Maru” (which derives from “San Maru” meaning mountain top), this coffee shop is of the highest quality (from the highest elevation, woot woot). Also, did y’all notice that the coffee shop is located on Hillhurst?! Like talk about clever marketing placement + cultural meaning. Good job, you guys.

Maru feels like home because of the tranquility it has – definitely the perfect space to grab coffee with a friend after brunch around the area or to just have some alone time.

Seriously, go check out Maru!
