While in Joburg in 2013 I was so impressed by how many more great coffee shops had opened since I lived there, and particularly in the Braamfontein area. One definitely worth a mention is Doubleshot Coffee & Tea. Located on the corner of Juta Street and Melle Street, Doubleshot Coffee & Tea is the ideal spot to grab a cup of coffee or tea amidst the highrises and busyness of Joburg’s city.
In their own words Doubleshot Coffee & Tea “grow, process, roast, blend, brew and source exceptional quality coffee and tea”. They source their coffee from all regions and are pedantic about the quality and ethical credentials of their sources. The heart behind Doubleshot Coffee & Tea is one of pure love for coffee and tea and producing superb blends and brews for their clientele.
Doubleshot Coffee & Tea have an exceptional amount of information on their website where you can learn all about brewing methods for both tea and coffee, as well as health benefits. Check out their website HERE.
You can buy coffee or tea from the shop in Braamfontein or take a seat at the window while watching the world go by. Doubleshot Coffee & Tea have a selection of baked treats to couple with your drink of choice and in August last year they started serving High Tea in the afternoon for R150 a person. Check out the High Tea options HERE.
I just loved the genuine love that these guys had for their product and I cannot wait for my next Joburg visit so I can pop in for a flat white coffee and maybe buy a couple bags of tea.
