Spaces: Blacktop Coffee Is Brewing Up Damn Good Coffee

Because good coffee doesn't have to be pretentious.

Anyone who lives in Los Angeles can tell you that it can be hard to get a sense of community here. The city is sprawling, and more time is spent in the car as opposed to on-foot so you don’t always have those friendly neighborhood faces that you see regularly... that is until you walk into Blacktop Coffee in the Arts District. Yes, they do have damn good coffee, bringing in beans from Sightglass out of San Francisco... but unlike a lot of the trendy coffee spots in LA, there is nothing pretentious about Tyler Wells (previously of Handsome Roasters) and his staff. Just a great product, expertly brewed and served with a smile. Not too long ago they started serving food as well. You can’t go wrong with the avocado toast, and they have one of the best cold brews served out of a nitro tap that I have ever had.
