Blue Bottle Wire

Matthew Kang is the Lead Editor of Eater LA. He has covered dining, restaurants, food culture, and nightlife in Los Angeles since 2008. He's the host of K-Town, a YouTube series covering Korean food in America, and has been featured in Netflix's Street Food show.

In addition to the Handsome Coffee acquisition, Blue Bottle also purchased local roaster Tonx, which produces direct-to-consumer coffee subscriptions. That transaction took place mainly for Tonx's sophisticated software and e-commerce systems, which they'll eventually apply to Blue Bottle's website. Back to Handsome, Blue Bottle wrote today on its blog that it plans to open in the Arts District by summer, becoming the first official cafe to open in LA. [Blue Bottle Blog]
