Coffee Roasters at Truth Coffee in Cape Town

Recently voted the “world’s best coffee shop” . Nevertheless the Truth Coffee House in Cape Town is one of the places to be and to be seen.

Very industrial and with a great vibe, the patrons flock in to sample the ‘doubles only’ types and flavours of coffee.

Truth Coffee in Cape Town was recently listed first in an article on the world’s best coffee shops by The Telegraph in the UK.

“There are few cafés in the world as stunning as Truth, a ‘steampunk inspired’ artisan coffee shop that is filled from top to bottom with metal piping and quirky old machinery,” reads The Telegraph article.

“But people don’t just flock there for the décor – the coffee is all hand-roasted in a vintage cast-iron drum, and the company supplies many of South Africa’s top hotels.”

Being listed in this article is high praise indeed. We sat down with founder David Donde to find out the TRUTH behind this exquisite coffee shop.

What makes Truth Coffee different from other coffee shops?
What makes us different is that we concentrate on flavour and not bitterness, and we constantly question what we do. We believe that there is always a better way to do things.

Tell us the truth about your coffee. What’s in it?
We work on a philosophy, which is The Joy of Extraordinary TRUTH. We want to deliver upon the promise made by the aroma of freshly ground coffee. We source our beans from the best countries in the world and buy it on a relationship model, which means we pay more for better coffee. We then roast each bean in our vintage cast-iron drum and taste each coffee and constantly improve the taste. After roasting, we mix it with other coffees to create blends.

Truth Coffee is in Buitengraght Street, Cape Town – right next to the lap dancing bar, Mavericks!
