  • Salt Rock Espresso Bar Sign in Durban

Salt Rock Cafe now Situated at the Sea Side

Salt Rock Espresso Bar, a beloved pop-up espresso bar and roastery finally has a place of its own. Tucked away between a barber and 7th on Main, Salt Rock Espresso Bar brings some damn fine coffee to Chaka’s Rock.

A little hard to find, the new shop is quaint with a clean, dark aesthetic. There’s plenty of wood and black accents which in turn make the small space rather enjoyable. The bar itself is perhaps a bit dim but there’s more seating outside on the patio, so don’t worry too much. The patio is really a lovely area and has a sea view.

It’s a great space to sit down, enjoy a coffee and have one of the R8 cookies they sell. The cookie was a bit dry but the coffee on the other hand, is the real reason one would visit this coffee bar. The coffee is spectacular, it’s rather sweet with a beautiful mouthfeel and an enjoyable aftertaste. The milk was silky, admittingly a bit bubbly, but that didn’t hold back the beauty of the espresso in this flat white. Overall, it was one of the best tasting coffees on the North Coast.

Part of this comes from the precision their beans receive throughout the process. The company carefully roasts their beans and sells them fresh. At the bar they are freshly ground and dosed by the grinder. There is plenty of scepticism in the coffee community regarding the accuracy of these dosing grinders. Salt Rock Espresso has a quality check at the end of each day using a scale to ensure that the doses are right in each espresso in case the R20 000 grinder starts to mess up.

This bar may be quite small, but it’s a big competitor in Ballito’s coffee scene with an absolutely delicious cup of coffee. If you’re keen for an outstanding coffee and a cookie, check out Salt Rock Espresso Bar on 2 Main Road, Shaka’s Rock.
