The Department of Coffee (DoC) is a fantastic spot just as you exit the Khayelitsha Train Station. The shop was started by Wongama, Vusumzi and Vuyile in July 2012 as three guys with a vision to change the coffee culture in the townships.
They are now serving all types of java from lattes to cappucino's, freezachinos and flat whites. You call it coffee, they call it their passion. The even will deliver within a certain distance from their shop.
A trip to the DoC will leave you feeling energise about the entrepreneurship within this impoverished community. You'll also leave with one of the best cups of coffee in town at the best price. An easy commute via train, it will take you approximately 45 minutes from the Cape Town Central station.
