It looks like Malibu is about to get another coffee option. Window paper is up on an erstwhile real estate agency space in the shopping center at 29575 Pacific Coast Hwy. announcing that something called Alessi Coffee Lab is intent on moving in. I don’t have much information about Alessi, nor do I have any knowledge if they are related to the famous Italian brand. But the window paper promises us all-natural, mineral-rich organic drinks.
