The much anticipated new project from barista superstar Christopher Nicely Abel Alameda is now open, and we’ve got an inside look from our LA desk chief, Julie Wolfson. It’s called Menotti’s Coffee Stop – you can start the buzz now.

Records spin. Nicely has great taste in music. According to a recent interview, “Sly and the Family Stone is a favorite. Joni Mitchell is a favorite. Nas is a favorite. Outkast is a favorite. And I’ll own this too. Gloria Estefan, that’s a favorite. A particular album though. Her Spanish music. Not the English stuff. There was an album she came out with in ’92 called “”Mi Tierra.” It’s one of the best of all time.”
