Where eagles dare.


Our story

Civil Coffee was founded in 2011 on a dream of providing guests with a wonderful coffee experience without the usual context.  

It was established  by Alan and Alex Morales as an espresso pop up catering experience servicing the Los Angeles area. Under the banner of Civil Coffee, the home grown Angeleno brother duo served liquid gold in all sorts of events and festivities, from intimate weddings to full on festivals like Coachella. Through the years, the goal was to eventually open a brick and mortar where the ideas of Civil could be materialized.

In November of 2015, Civil Coffee opened its doors in the historic and colorful Los Angeles neighborhood of Highland Park. This is where great coffee from various roasters is purveyed in the form of espresso and filter brews though single origin offerings. A delightful breakfast and lunch menu, is also found to pair with the coffee. The overall intention was to design an experience that was friendly and approachable, serving the neighborhood as a watering hole and community space.  

You can still be pleasantly surprised to find Civil popping up around town at various events, but its in Highland Park where every day is a good day to be civil.
