  • Never Run Out of Coffee Again

    Many of you are buying our beans when you need more coffee, and you are gifting them to friends. To all of you, we say: It’s thanks to YOU and others like YOU that we have been able to keep our lights on, our employees working, and our roastery fired up, especially during this year of so much calamity.

  • Uganda LOVE this New Coffee!

    I have exactly ONE customer who will laugh at this joke each time he visits our Beverly Hills 90212 coffee shop and asks me to recommend to him a g...
  • Frank Sumatra

    Frank Sinatra was the coolest of the cool, king of the Rat Pack and smooth crooner, wowing men and women alike. A timeless classic.

    Aharon Coffee Sumatra, arguably the new king of coffees at our Beverly Hills 90212 café, has us swooning as if we are grooving to New York, New York. Like Sinatra, our new organic, Fair Trade coffee from Sumatra, Indonesia is cool, a timeless classic, a crowd-pleaser, and above all, smooooooth.

  • How to Brew Coffee with a French Press

    Before we opened our Beverly Hills café, Aharon Vaknin, my husband and founder of Aharon Coffee, used to brew French press coffee for us almost daily at home. We loved the rich flavor and the naturally occurring coffee oils that gave our cup a wonderfully bold, rich flavor and a full-bodied mouthfeel.

    In our café, you won’t find French press coffee on our online menu (though we’ve been known to offer it as an ‘off the menu’ option for those who ask) but at home, it’s still a Vaknin staple.

  • Learn How to Make Cold Brew Like the Pros

    During the hot days of summer (vs cooler days), we sell triple and sometimes 10x the regular amount of cold brew at our Beverly Hills 90212 coffee shop and coffee roastery.

    Aharon Cold Brew coffee is crisp, smooth, and well-balanced, and has a chocolate note and a naturally sweet flavor note that makes it a knock out in the Cold Brew category.

    Learn to make it in 7 simple steps.

  • Bravo for Espresso!

    Aharon’s small-batch roasted, organic, joy-infused espresso has always been one of the most renowned and delicious offerings of our café. It is also an essential item for our espresso-loving online customers who want that Aharon café experience at home.

    But what exactly IS espresso?

  • Our Decaf Coffee is Spectacular

    1st, even decaf coffee has incredible health benefits; 2nd, many people need to avoid caffeine for legit health reasons but they still love the taste of coffee; and, 3rd, why shouldn’t people who are sensitive to caffeine (most of us) be able to enjoy a coffee in the evening?
  • Aharon: The Man, the Myth, the Legend… the Dad

    Over the years, many curious customers have wandered into our shop only because the name intrigued them. “Came because of the name, stayed because of the coffee” is the mantra of many of our now-regular clients. Intrigued by the unusual name Aharon, they had wandered inside, made a purchase, and then left with a transcendent cup of coffee and/or coffee beans, forever changed.
  • Honey Processed Coffee

    Have you ever heard of “honey processed” coffee? I knew this type of coffee existed, but it always confused me.


    Because there is NO HONEY in, around, or related to the honey processed coffee!

    You heard me: honey processed coffee has never been in contact with actual honey. So, you might logically ask, what’s with the name?

  • How to Brew Awesome Hot Coffee Using the Hand Pour Over Method

    The pour over coffee brewing method has been around for decades and it is still considered by the most prestigious coffee professionals in the world to be the premier method to brew a divine cup of coffee.

    Aharon himself enjoys at least one pour over a day – not just for the wonderful tasting resulting cup of coffee, but also because he deeply enjoys the ritual.

  • How to Brew Awesome Hot Coffee Using a Drip Machine

    As you may know, our family owned and operated, world-renowned café/roastery, Aharon Coffee & Roasting Co. of Beverly Hills, CA, was built upon one simple guiding principle: The Joy of Coffee.

    This concept was the brainchild of our founder/master roaster/ “coffee guru”/culinary intuitive/Q Grader* Aharon Vaknin, along with his wife – me! (I may not get all the fancy titles, but I do get to drink all the delicious coffee, so our partnership is definitely a win-win. Plus, I love people even more than I love coffee, so it is truly my great pleasure to serve, ship and otherwise share our joy-infused coffee with others like you!)

  • Brewing Hacks that Will Give You a Divine Cup of Coffee at Home (Part 2)

    In the last blog, I addressed how important the WATER is that you use to brew your coffee. Now we need to address the second most frequent way people murder their coffee beans.

    Many well-meaning enthusiastic coffee lovers kill the goodness locked within the coffee beans with the WRONG type of grinder, one that should never have been designated for coffee.
