Motherland Coffee Company is a growing specialty coffee brand that merges a boutique café experience with the openness of a high street brand.

Taking pride in the quality of speciality African origin coffees, and the heritage of coffee in Africa, their direct trade beans and barista expertise will leave you dreaming of your next cup. Motherland perfectly blends the Science and Soul of coffee, lab-like brewing expertise meets hospitality charged with African soul and creativity. Motherland’s Sandton City location is another inspired space designed to resonate and serve the community around it. The double volume lobby of the Sandton Tower is home to the their chapel of coffee, 100% designed and manufactured locally by artisan woodworker and furniture designer David Krynauw. Warm wood tones and distinct rounded structural edges softly draw you in. With espresso based coffees pulled from a gloss black La Marzocco, complimented by an intriguing and well appointed pour-over station alongside it, your coffee dreams will be fulfilled. The focused food menu is light and approachable, all freshly prepared and served from the counter.

This is the perfect office break, or a welcome coffee oasis for the weary shopper. With the lobby stairs leading onto 5thstreet, and double volume glass shopfronts, you can either stop by and grab a quick fix, or stay for lunch well into the afternoon while catching up on some work (read free, fast wifi).  It’s both in the centre of Santon City Shopping centre, but detached enough to feel like you’ve escaped.

How to find it:

On the Nelson Mandela Walkway in Sandton City, it’s directly opposite Haagen Dasz, just down the escalators. Or pop in off 5thStreet, the Lobby of the Sandton Tower.
