KL's coffee nomads are on the move again, transforming yet another unexpected venue into an oasis of flat white fantasies. This is no mirage - stride into the showroom of Johnson Tiles in Telawi & you'll find the latest home of pop-up purveyors Outcast Coffee. This soothing two-storey space, featuring cosy corners that feel like a cross between a home, a cafe & a gallery, showcases Outcast's penchant for cultivating intriguing spaces with character & charm. It's a cool counterpoint to the bustle of Bangsar - customers are welcome to come in, order a bite or drink, & relax with their friends or tackle some work.
Outcast fans will be encouraged to know the team now has its own house blend, an easy-drinking trinity of Kenyan, Ethiopian & Sumatran beans, with light chocolaty undercurrents rounded by a toasty finish, ideally enjoyed white (RM10; customers who work in Telawi are entitled to beverage discounts). The pop-up's popular soy or coconut lattes also remain available. Food possibilities include fresh pies like tuna-&-cheese or chicken-&-mushrooms, lovingly prepared by a PJ-based home baker; other options include tempting spiced pecan loaves, assorted sandwiches & distinctive cakes. You can also purchase Outcast's coffee beans to bring home, as well as English Breakfast, Earl Grey & Lemongrass Ginger tea bags by Roleaf.
Pop-up expected to remain for the next several months at: Johnson Tiles, 46, Jalan Telawi 5, Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur.
Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm; Sat, 9am-4pm; Sun, closed. Tel: 019-616-5193
