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.
The brand new Spout Coffee Co opened 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 coffees 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 their small kitchen facilities, they also offer 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 they brew 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 a whipped maple butter and the blueberry and yoghurt slice brings out the full-bodied roast of the coffee. The blueberry flavours pair beautifully with the slight fruitiness of their signature blend while the creaminess of this cake goes hand-in-hand with the rich and dark roast.
An interesting space
Because they are located in a shipping container, they wanted to keep as many natural textures as possible in the interior design of the shop, with touches of retro details here and there. There has been considerable amount of care given to even the smaller details – the packaging of their products, the picture-perfect surfaces; the styled decor and the way they serve their coffees. Spout Coffee Co is a genuinely authentic and original espresso bar concept.
