Best friends since school, Mark Wain and Gary Chau quit their corporate jobs in 2006 to start their dream of working together and owning a local neighborhood business. Through their shared passion for European sensibilities, their experiences with caffe culture in Italy always stayed with them; the artisan approach to coffee preparation, the value of community, and the ability for a caffe to serve as both a way to get ready for the day, and a place to unwind for the evening. They both dreamed of bringing these experiences back with them to Los Angeles, and creating a neighborhood caffe to share with their community.
Established to bring a unique luxury to coffee and a culinary experience, Caffe Luxxe was the first caffe in Los Angeles to champion a move towards hand crafted artisanal espresso and brewed coffee. Our dedication to serving the best, individually crafted beverages has helped LA drinkers discover what fine coffees can taste like, earning us numerous accolades by customers and journalists alike. Hand crafting every single drink is our daily passion, and we strive to make each drink better than the last.
