We’re proud to be part of this:
I’m a coffee freak, and if you saw my procedure each morning you’d understand. Simple, precise. No machines, Just a classic Chemex, filter, grinder, 208 degree water, and the ultimate beans from Caffe Umbria in Seattle. I now have a full selection of these beauties on the shelves for you.
Three generations of roasters in this family, they were among the first do do this in Seattle, a city known as the birthplace of the gourmet coffee business in the US. they began roasting in the 1940′s before moving to Seattle from Perugia.

The real story will be in your cup at home each day.
Is back in stock, ( pun intended)

Daily Candy recognized our little store as being one of it’s Best Finds of 2012. #3 on the list!
We only (re) opened in September. We’re just getting started. They ain’t seen nothing yet….http://www.dailycandy.com/los-angeles/article/141429/The-Best-Finds-of-2012
My step brother and I came together a bit reluctantly over 30 years ago when his father married my mother. When Henry Miller married Ursula Kagan the family got weird. He had a son named Peter….So did my mother. Peter Miller and I (Peter Kagan), got married too. My name was modified to make distinction clear, my family and very close friends call me Peter Mike.
Henry Miller had a beautiful shop, a haberdashery that we all worked in, some of us, a lot…me. Many great lessons were taken away from the experience. Peter Miller took his to Seattle where he has created a very successful business, Peter Miller Books. Architecture , design…gorgeously curated stuff…
A couple of weeks ago he and his talented wife Colleen , and architect, came to visit Topanga. one of the original foodies, a fantastic chef, Miller was super excited about the store. He woke up one morning and proclaimed,” Canyon Gourmet must be a Canyon.” OK….” You gonna need to relax into this” he assured me…Sounded like what a gets said to to a new cell mate In prison…He proceeded to totally rearrange the store with Colleen doing a plan to guide us….looks fantastic. Open. Everyone who walks in says LOVE what you’ve done to the place…..Credit to Danielle for her unflinching pursuit of simplicity…. come visit soon..
Yeah. Also candied pecan, brown butter sage, cranberry orange thyme.
Great seasonal flavors a from Carmela’s, as well as all the regular faves. Lots of Ice cream sandwiches too. You know you want one….
For the convenience of our neighbors, we’ll be open from about 9 am till about 1 pm on Thanksgiving, just in case you need something. Another onion? Butter? a bottle of wine…
We love you Topanga
