The Cape Town coffee scene is bursting at the seams and locals can now join barista courses and learn how to roast and prepare their perfect cup of coffee. There are many coffee spots in Cape Town that all offer something unique and we found it hard to narrow them down, but in the end we picked our top 10.

Haas

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Haas Collective is situated in Buitenkant Street and offers a mix of collectables, antiques, a gallery and a coffee shop. Haas Collective sources some of the finest coffee blends from countries such as Brazil and Indonesia. What makes Haas so unique, apart from the art and collectables, is that they stock the world’s most expensive coffee, Kopi Luwak. This coffee is made from beans that have been eaten Asian Palm Chivets, a small mammal that inhabits forests, resulting in a mild and less bitter coffee.

Origin

Origin takes coffee roasting and making very seriously and even offers courses in the art of coffee brewing. Serving coffee, tea, breakfast and lunch, Origin is a good place to enjoy lunch while on a walking tour through Bo Kaap or De Waterkant. The beans are roasted and ground on site to ensure freshness and flavour and you can buy a bag to take home as well. The buyers behind Origin travel far and wide in Africa (Tanzania and Kenya) to the farmers who grow the beans and take time to learn from them as well.

bean there2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bean There

Serving fairtrade beans, Bean There opens at 7:30am on weekdays ensuring the city gets its daily dose of caffeine early. It has been said that the establishment in Wale Street serves some of the best coffee in Cape Town and with a flat white starting at R18 we love every aspect of Bean There. By hand selecting their beans when travelling to farms and roasting in small batches they ensure only excellent coffee is produced daily. Bean There caters for everyone and provides a creative space for meetings or walk ins wanting a good cup of coffee while overlooking the busy streets of Cape Town.

truth

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Truth

Truth makes a strong statement about applauding quality coffee prepared with love. It is clear why the Guardian has dubbed Truth ‘The World’s Coolest Café’ as soon as you set foot inside. The décor is steampunk and built around a 1940’s cast iron coffee roaster that is still used by Truth to roast their premium blends. This café takes roasting coffee seriously and one of their baristas was the 2008 South African Barista Champion. We recommend the full-bodied espresso to fully understand and taste the love and devotion that go into creating their coffee.
