Because of drinks like the inimitable Spanish Latte, the buddyTruk team wants to recognize Urth Caffè as "The Best Coffee Spot in Los Angeles."

The Best Coffee on Urth

With the Buddytruk app currently in beta testing (and trust me when I say this, it’s well worth the wait), it’s safe to say we’ve been spending quite a few caffeine-fueled nights in and around the office in Santa Monica. In our quest to perfect the world’s first, and best, […]
