Vintage Coffee opens up a second shop in Pretoria.

Many coffee lovers have visited duo Kevin and Rebeca Clark’s non-profit coffee shop, Vintage Coffee in Centurion. Much to everybody’s delight Lynnwood and its neighbouring suburbs are bustling with exciting new shops and restaurants giving residents ample choice. Nestled between the frequented Lucky Rodrigo and Forkies Real Food Parlour in neighbouring Menlo Park is the new home of the second Vintage Coffee.

The opening

We joined Kevin and Rebeca along with their friends and family to celebrate the start of a whole new chapter for Vintage Coffee. Guests were treated to a variety of signature drinks, and Forkies Real Food Parlour’s wood oven pizza made sure nobody went hungry. This symbiotic relationship between Forkies and Vintage Coffee started when Forkies became the supplier of the sandwiches at the shop. Vintage Coffee officially opened its doors to the public on 6 June and was instantly buzzing with excited customers.

The “Green Beans”

Vintage Coffee regularly hosts coffee workshops where the curious and passionate can learn more about the basics of good coffee. Kevin and Rebeca also take pride in their volunteer trainee baristas known as “Green Beans” (referring to unroasted coffee beans). The “Green Beans” team was an integral part of the opening as they prepared a variety of drinks, such as the chocolate brownie cup drink made by Daniella – she calls this signature drink the dirty mud cup.

The space

In contrast to its older sibling’s dark metro tiles and big airy space, the new Vintage Coffee is light and compact. White and grey hexagon tiles on the walls and parts of the floor create an effortless minimal, albeit interesting, space. Coffee enthusiasts can enjoy a cup of coffee in one of two cosy window nooks. Be sure to check out the custom-designed counter made of Brazilian slate – a detail that celebrates Rebeca’s heritage and their time in Brazil. The space has comfortable seating, great flow and ample surface space to work. Check out the Facebook page (facebook.com/vintagecoffeersa) for updates.
