Last weekend saw the arrival of Constellation Coffee, a new specialty coffee option for sleepy La Cañada Flintridge. The strip mall stop-off, just two doors down from Flintridge Proper, already seems to be busy with the locals, as the place has been bustling since the moment they opened their doors last Friday.
Constellation Coffee is the work of Kevin Kim, a long time coffee journeyman who has been everywhere from Found Coffee in Eagle Rock on down. With his new shop up in the foothills, Kim is working with multiple roasters and suppliers for his drip coffee, espresso, tea drinks, and pastries. Seating comes from the coffee bar or a separate run of stools looking out the big plate glass window, plus a couple of individual tables along a side wall. Yes, there will be wifi.
Constellation Coffee is open now, keeping weekday hours from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday is 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday is 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
