Go Get Em Tiger x La Marzocco Home

Los Angeles, CA

About us:

Hey there, LM subscribers,

We’re thrilled to be with you again this holiday season! For the uninitiated, Go Get Em Tiger started as a humble pop-up in 2012 and now operates nine cafes and a roastery in the Los Angeles area, including our sister brand, G&B Coffee. 10 years, wow! A lot of folks like to give tin or aluminum for a decade anniversary. You get coffee – way better.

A lot has changed since we last sent you coffee, and these days we’re roasting quite a bit lighter than years past. Due to that lighter profile, you can expect our coffees to hit their peak in the first 10 days off roast. GGET coffees are rarely best after 14 days, so keep that in your back pocket.

When it comes to sourcing, we’re old school – nothing but clean, washed process coffees. We eschew the latest, wackiest ferment and inoculated methodologies in favor of producers who execute the basics at an extremely high level. Save the pineapples for your piña coladas and keep your Koji for soy sauce. At GGET, picking truly ripe coffee, grown in healthy soil and with clean processing is still the key that unlocks the greatest treasure: sweet, complex coffees that have a sense of place and time.

We hope you enjoy these truly special coffees, and are stoked to be in your hoppers the next few weeks..
