CAFFE LUXXE DECANTS MORE THAN COFFEE BY EXPANDING ITS RETAIL COLLECTION TO INCLUDE
HAND-CRAFTED LINES AIMED AT ELEVATING THE SENSES
Santa Monica, CA - As the holiday season draws closer, Caffe Luxxe broadens its selection of well-edited lifestyle products from comestibles to all natural beauty products to handcrafted leather goods to letterpress cards and more. From Italy are imported flavored olives (lemon and truffle) as well as flavored salts (truffle and saffron) from Casina Rossa, six-year aged balsamic vinegars from Maletti and a traditional biscotti with almonds and pine nuts (a popular Tuscan favorite for over 150 years) from Antonio Mattei. To hydrate and soothe the body are Malin + Goetz’s natural grooming, apothecary and beauty products like Vitamin B5 Hand Treatment, neroli hand and body lotion, bergamot body wash and mojito lip balm. To stay connected, an engaging assortment of letterpress greeting cards from Egg Press are highlighted as well as exquisite handmade leather goods including iPhone and iPad sleeves made exclusively by Kenton Sorenson.
Caffe Luxxe, launched in 2006 by Mark Wain and Gary Chau, has grown to three locations and recently opened its own roasting facility, Il Laboratorio, last month near downtown Los Angeles. The artisanal coffee company, known for pouring out social vibrancy, has been expanding its array of lifestyle goods with careful and genuine consideration for their customers’ palates and aesthetic. "We want our regulars and our baristi to always be inspired; of course by our coffee and tea but also by the selection of items we carry which are reflective of their taste for quality," comments Chau. “Our guests who exude a playful sophistication, appreciate the sentimentality of gift-giving, which is why we continue to expand the lines we carry, not only to pique their curiosity by discovering and showcasing hard-to-find items but to make the process inviting, easy and convenient.”
The new products exude Caffe Luxxe’s European sensibility and join their other exquisite lines already available like La Compagnie De Provence body care, Pago Baldios San Carlos and Full Moon olive oils, Leonardi Traditional Balsamic Vinegars of Modena and Bunches & Bunches Ginger Snaps and Cloud Cookies. Locally roasted in small batches, Caffe Luxxes’ coffee beans and new selection of organic teas like Caramelized Pear Rooibos, are also available at their three locations: On Montana avenue, at The Brentwood Country Mart and in Brentwood Village on San Vicente boulevard.
