Braamfontein must surely be one of the coolest areas in Johannesburg at the moment, so much so that its ultra-cool lofts feature in decorating magazines and even in this Volkswagen ad. Juta street sits right at the heart of the action, and at the heart of Juta street is Doubleshot. It looks fantastic from outside. The great window seats looking out into the street seems the perfect place to do a bit of people watching while waiting for your coffee to be roasted.
The shop is a collaboration between a South African tea blender and the owner of a tea and coffee farm in Malawi. You will indeed find the Malawian products in the shop, but Doubleshot also stocks a variety of coffees and teas from around the world. They also pride themselves on their baristas’ fantastic reputation and latte art skills. If you look closely at the pic below of the cappuccino you will see a little heart right at the top of the cup. I was impressed. And even more so when I tasted my coffee. Great coffee, great location.
