Who knew Cape Town is home to the world’s best coffee shop? Well, according to the Daily Telegraph, that honour goes to Truth Coffee in the South African capital.
Looking like something that came out of The Fifth Element, the coffee shop founded by David Donde is a paradise for steampunk fanatics. We marvel at… the entire café, covered by South African designer Haldane Martin with aged metal piping, repurposed machinery and stripped wooden floors. This is a factory of dreams and of artisanal coffee.
Every sip reveals something new, both for the taste buds and for the other senses. Here is a vintage type writer incorporated into the striking bar; here are some retro posters and some steampunk-inspired art. Music is loud, naturally. Even the baristas serving us are dressed to match the ambience, each in bespoke steampunk attire.
Truth Coffee’s key feature is the 60kg Probatcast iron roaster drum from the 1940s. Nicknamed the Colossus, this old-school roaster produces more heat than conventional steel drums. The result? Expect bold-tasting coffee here, to go with the bold décor.
Signature drinks include their Sunrise Espresso (a double shot with a dash of orange juice) and Keto Diet approved Battle Brew Coffee (blended Americano, butter and MCT oil). Not our usual cuppas, but as lively as the heart of Cape Town.
Truth Coffee在去年被英國報章Daily Telegraph 列為世界最佳咖啡館之一，
這別緻的設計與裝潢，是當地著名設計師Haldane Martin 的精心傑作，
