NEIGH-BOURHOOD SECRET: DC COFFEE CO
We’ve stated before that Covid-19 Lockdown has made us rethink brands we support based on their treatment of customers and employees during the pandemic. One small business that has remained a beacon of positivity and retained their sense of humour throughout is DC Coffee Co.
Covid-19 and its devastating impact on humanity, business and the economy have seen the best and worst in people and brands being exposed on social media. Whilst for many, the high highs and low lows coupled with Government’s ever-changing and often bizarre regulations has been cause for negativity or a total social media detox – whilst for others, it has been motivation for kindness, humility and resilience. Once such brand, who has remained ever positive in their tone, who have followed regulations and compliance requirements, who have responded to every comment and tagged post, who maintain a level of humour in their communications and who have still given back to others even when times were tough – is the DC Coffee Co located in Fourways, Johannesburg.
The store itself is a colourful sensory experience – with upcycled furniture, bright origami birds and pops of colour – a pleasant change to the four walls of our homes which many of us are quite accustomed to staring at during lockdown. Whilst it remains a takeaway-only outlet for the time being, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to the menu and we can almost guarantee you’ll walk away with a few more items than originally ordered (like Peanut Brittle and Nougat Cheesecakes….. don’t say we didn’t warn you!).
If you’re looking to support small businesses on this rocky road to economic recovery, then consider ordering your next coffee from DC Coffee Co. Apart from the delicious menu options which are not only delightfully presented and packaged but are equally delicious and reasonably priced, they have also implemented Free Coffee Fridays to pass on the love to those in need and they’ve spent Mandela month July supporting Shalom Animal Rescue Centre through the sale of Doggychinos.
They currently only accept cards or Snapscan (not cash, as a Covid prevention method) and also do deliveries within the area. They’re open between 06h30 and 15h00 on weekdays and between 08h00 and 14h00 on Saturdays and can be found in the Design & Décor Centre on Forest Road in Pineslopes (Molly Malones Centre for all the Gauteng-ers). Best of all – they’re dog-friendly!
