Premium version of the South Korean coffee chain Tom n Toms.
There had been a regular Tom n Toms at 3974 Wilshire by Wilton Place that was operating 24 hours a day from 2011/2012 until it closed in 2017. Since then, plans for Tom n Toms Black had been floated by the corporate office.
BLACK is the luxurious brand of TOMNTOMS for single-origin coffee, which they’ve dubbed The Calypso. The focus is on black-only blend coffee from around the world.
Most of the old regular-style Tom n Toms that sprouted all over in Koreatown circa 2012 have closed down, with only the small branches at 2716 Olympic and at Koreatown Galleria at 440 South Vermont still remaining.
