  • 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.

  • Brewing Hacks That Will Give You a Divine Cup of Coffee at Home (Part 1)

    Use the Right Water. For crying out loud, NO MORE using tap water to brew your coffee! I know, I know, tap water is accessible and safe to drink; be my guest and chug it down after a long hot workout or any time you are thirsty. Just DO NOT use it to brew your coffee.
  • Aharon Coffee is Amazing for Your Body and Mind (part 2)

    When we were growing up, we were warned that coffee wasn’t good for you and it was best to stay away. Come to find out… it was the SUGAR in the coffee, maybe the CREAM, and possibly the DARK ROASTED beans that were, in fact, not healthy.
  • Aharon Coffee is Amazing For Your Body and Mind (part 1)

    Since we opened Aharon Coffee & Roasting Co. in Beverly Hills, CA, we have heard endless testimonials from customers and clients. They couldn’t drink too much coffee (or they abstained completely) because it made them feel jittery, gave them reflux, or triggered some other uncomfortable symptom… until they switched exclusively to Aharon Coffee. 
  • At Aharon, We Care about Community

    When the government ordered all non-essential retail businesses to close but allowed cafes like ours to stay open for grab & go and delivery options, we breathed a sigh of relief.
  • You(and Me)Tube

    Aharon and I have spent the past five years laser-focused on making our flagship coffee shop & roastery a truly unique and wonderful destination and expanding our coffee customers by offering our small-batch roasted beans for sale online.
  • The BEST Matcha. Ever. Seriously.

    In the beginning (of Aharon Coffee & Roasting Co.), there was only coffee. No food. No juice. No tea. Just small-batch roasted, incredibly tasty, incredibly healthy coffee. Coffee beans, hot coffee, pour-over coffee, Turkish coffee, iced coffee, cold brew coffees, nitro coffees, café lattes… You get the picture.
  • How to Brew Turkish Coffee

          The Turkish coffee brewing method means first brewing very finely-ground coffee and water together in a small copper or brass pot call...
  • The Coffee that Changed my Life

    Aharon had only been roasting for a few months - after his initial life-altering trip to the coffee farms of Boquete, Panama, where he first learned about coffee, harvesting and roasting - he returned to LA and our family with a fire in his heart and a pure desire to roast amazing coffees from around the world and share this coffee with everyone, everywhere.
  • Coffee = Fountain of Youth

    Sound extreme? Consider this: recent studies have proven coffee helps rejuvenate the liver (yes, counteracting the damage done by last night's bender), reduce risk of skin cancer, heart disease, alzheimer's and diabetes, and it even works to counteract erectile disfunction.
