I just called them and they say their under KOLA hashgacha. My sources say KOLA is a legit hashgacha.
KOLA is not recommended anymore. They had the problem with coffee bean

That. Of course KOLA will tell you their hashgacha is reliable. Which hashgacha wouldn't?

What does the hashgacha scene look like in LA/CA

P.S. I had suggested back in the day that it be added to wiki's but can understand that it may become complex.

Who's your source? I asked reputable kashrus people in LA and, while you're correct it's under KOLA, they don't recommend it.
So they don't recommend coffee bean anymore?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Hey cool, I'll be in LA Sunday night. Arriving afternoon. But I don't think I can get away with ditching the MRS. First night of Vaca.

No, CBTL is different. Ask in LA thread for more details.

5 years ago I had heard KOLA was not 100% then about 2 years ago things changed so I called a mashgiach from one of the other Vaads and they agreed it was now reliable. I'll try and reach out to them again but if you're right it means all the coffee bean locations are not reliable anymore.

I just spoke to my source and he was unable to give me a definitive answer. So I removed it from the app. Thank you for the information.
