Rampart Village’s new Tactile Coffee has almost arrived. The gorgeous brick-walled coffee bar space sits along Beverly Boulevard in a recently revamped commercial building that will soon come to also house the likes of Vaka Burgers next door, and should be ready to roll by next week.

Tactile Coffee is the work of Mike and Eric Yi, brothers who first got into the coffee scene locally by way of a roving morning truck back in 2016. Early last year they announced plans to jump to Beverly Boulevard to help anchor what has become a very hot residential and commercial real estate corridor in Los Angeles. Now they’re ready for an official unveiling, with plans to start limited service hours on Tuesday, February 20.

The Yi brothers are carrying over some of their most popular items from the truck, including a blackstrap latte with housemade syrup and hand-blended chai tea mixes. Tactile is using Counter Culture Coffee for their beans, and will also be doing pourovers in addition to espresso drinks.

Expect limited food to start, just pastries and biscuits and the like. Eventually the plan is to move into a more robust morning menu with grains and fruits mostly, but that will come with time. For now, expect Tactile to run hours from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday in Rampart Village.
