Enjoy an artisanal brew in the eclectic but accessible surrounds of Spout Coffee Company in Waterkloof.

The steam of my artisan coffee fills the fresh, early morning air. I’m surrounded by rustic wooden furniture in a stylish but informal set-up. The attractive glass house upstairs offers a bird’s-eye view of the picturesque surroundings.

Spout Coffee Company opened at the beginning of May as an answer to the high demand for artisanal coffee. The concept behind Spout was to have an outlet that serves excellent coffee seven days a week.

Customers can expect a consistently excellent cup of coffee, offered in a variety of ways: from delicious cappuccinos to the deep, rich tones of an espresso; a playful dessert option made of espresso and dulce de leche cream; and then a slightly more daring summer coffee cocktail (espresso served with Indian tonic).

Despite the menu being fairly limited due to the small kitchen facilities, Spout also offers a variety of continental-style breakfast options, delectable pastries, wonderful cakes and brilliant gourmet sarmies.

The food items are all designed and selected to support the tones and notes of the coffees brewed while also being a little different from what is being served nearby.

Visitors simply cannot get enough of the banana loaf, which is served with whipped maple butter. The creamy texture of the banana loaf goes hand in hand with the full-bodied taste of the rich and dark roast.

Another favourite is the blueberry and yoghurt slice. The blueberry flavours pair beautifully with the slight fruitiness of the signature blend.

Because it is located in a shipping container, Spout kept many natural textures in the interior design of the shop, with touches of retro details here and there.

Considerable care has been given to even the smaller details: the packaging of the products, the picture-perfect surfaces, the styled decor and the way the coffee is served. Spout Coffee Company is an authentic and original espresso bar concept.
