About 6 months ago, somebody posted an ISO for coffee milk in LA. I think they were looking for a diner that would make and serve coffee milk, but they got many responses about where to find Autocrat brand coffee syrup, which is used to make Rhode Island style coffee milks.
The update is that Groundwork Coffee Roasters sells an unsweetened coffee extract called Java Juice. They were getting cases delivered this morning, and I had them whip up 2 shots in a glass of milk. Great. I guess this is what the younger set calls "cafe au lait", but keeping a quart in the fridge to make shakes or instant coffee sounds like a great idea.
Groundwork in on Main in SM, on Rose in Venice, and on Traction downtown. 213 626 8650. Java Juice sells for $9.95/qt. And it's Kosher. Who knew?
