Rosetta at The Yard
Silo District, next to Zeitz MOCAA
The second iteration of Rosetta Roastery at the Silo District complex at V&A Waterfront is as beautiful as it is delicious.
Situated inside The Yard
, next door to the new Zeitz MOCAA museum (well worth a visit alone), the Rosetta brew bar is a compact, raised square of no more than 3 square metres, a shrine to coffee efficiency and ergonomics. The coffee itself? Simple incredible. Rob is apparently the brains behind the design which includes a milk tap (what?! Cold milk on tap? Amazing.) and has everything the talented barista could need including a Puq Press
, two Mythos Grinders for espresso, a Mahlkonig EK43 for pour overs.
Ollie, the long time barista from Rosetta HQ has been called back from his own endeavour (Ollie's
) to lend a hand as Rosetta spreads its wings. He was behind the bar, running the show and directing the traffic. The new custom Kees Van der Western Spirit facing the incoming onslaught of coffee-seeking tourists and visitors. The baristas, all 3 of them, stationed in position and moving the orders down the line to their enthusiastic recipients.
We enjoyed a Kenyan AB pourover, perfectly brewed and expertly served in gorgeous cups. We bumped into familiar faces and friends, and we enjoyed wandering around the larger spaces inside and outside the Silos precinct.
This new offering from the old guard of specialty coffee in CT, is certainly worth the visit.
