FILTER’s Top 10 of 2013: Cayucas

When it comes to end-of-year lists, it's definitely not all about us; we love to know what our favorite musicians and artists have been digging the most out of 2013, too, and we're thrilled to share those lists here.

One of our favorite debuts of the year had to be from LA-based Cayucas. Their record, Bigfoot, had us digging the sounds of the summer all year long, and we had a blast hanging with the guys in Las Vegas, where they were kind enough to perform a FILTER Session with us at Life Is Beautiful.

Below, the band gives us a personal top 10 of one of our absolute favorites: coffee.


Cayucas's Top 10 Cups of Coffee in LA (based strictly on the taste of the coffee)

Peets is still the best cup of coffee in LA. Many of the coffee shops on this list will put you in the hole $5 for a drip, but the truth is you get what you paid for. We are not coffee experts by any means but when you are surrounded by amazing coffee you eventually drink enough to know what is good and what is not. If you grow up in Brazil you probably know a thing or two about soccer, even if you don't play. By default, our palettes have become increasingly fickle and these are the places we gravitate towards.
