The Coffee Shop – Haas Collective
Haas is a very trendy, very interesting Coffee Shop in Buitenkant Street, Cape Town. This popular coffee shop is known for sourcing the finest beans from around the world. They also offer some more “exotic” coffees for the brave.
It was here at Haas that I was brave enough to drink my very first cup of Death Wish Coffee.
Lunch – A Bunny Chow
A friend and I decided to go to this well-known coffee shop in Cape Town for lunch. I was in the mood for a proper, truly South African Bunny Chow and Haas was just the place to get it.
A Bunny Chow is a hollowed out loaf of bread, which is normally filled with curry. In this case, it was filled with chicken curry and it was absolutely delicious.
The Coffee – A Death Wish Coffee
I normally order a cappuccino with my lunch, but Haas has so many different options that I wanted to try something different. I wanted to try something I have never tried before.
My waiter suggested I try one of their “exotic” coffees – a Death Wish Coffee. It sounded a bit daring, but I thought why not; let’s give it a try.
A Death Wish coffee is said to be one of the strongest coffees in the world. It comes from New York and has 200% more caffeine than a normal cup of coffee.
The coffee was really good, but I did feel like I was on a bit of a “buzz” afterwards, with my heart beating a little bit faster than normal, maybe because this wasn’t my first cup of coffee for the day.
Next Time – Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee
With my next visit to Haas, I want to try the Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee – Jamaican Blue Mountain is a delectably smooth coffee, shade grown on the misty slopes of the Jamaican mountains at an altitude of 1700m or higher and hand-picked to select only the most perfect beans.
If you love coffee make sure to visit Haas next time you are in Cape Town.
