Leslie is a writer and coffee guzzler currently residing in Los Angeles, although she's lived in several cities around the world. One of her favorite coffee shops is in Beijing: Metal Hands Coffee Co. You can find her working out of different cafes during work hours, and in the mountains or by the beach on the weekends. Her goal at the moment is to find the perfect blueberry muffin (shoutout to Costco, though) to pair with cortados made with whole milk—her go-to coffee order.
Red eye coffee is popular among those who need a powerful caffeine fix to keep them wide awake. It’s a simple drink to make, which makes it perfect for the occasion it’s intended for: a foggy-headed morning.
