Field Office

So there’s the office, the home office and then there’s the Coffice. In brief, the Coffice is a place that has, among other things,

- a space that is conducive to work and allows for concentration, productivity, creativity and conversation.
- an above average coffee offering.
- a decent connection to the interweb.
- a menu with items that are simple, tasty and satisfying and most importantly, can be held in one hand. Preferably, these items  should not contain any secret sauces that can make their way into the crevices of your keyboard. A bit of leeway is allowed here depending on the sauce.

On the surface, there are a number of establishments that may appear to be a true Coffice but you’ll find a greater chance of a brush-footed butterfly doing a handstand on its front legs than getting your work done. These places are better suited to perusing the Sartorialist and the ability to distinguish these spots comes with experience.

Field Office is a Coffice.

Brought to us by Luke Pedersen and James Lennard of Pedersen + Lennard, Field Office has only been open for a few weeks and already has mouths moving. In addition to providing a Coffice, it also serves as a space for local designers and artists to showcase their work.

They are serving coffee from Deluxe Coffeeworks and this particular blend offers a clean cup with a bold mouthfeel and just a touch of acidity. You’ll find dark chocolate flavours, hazelnut aromas and a soft caramel sweetness.

    Great to see a bona fide, self proclaimed Coffice established in Cape Town!

    While Field Office may not actually refer to themselves as a Coffice, they’ve set themselves up as such; kudos for recognizing the need not only amongst the business community, but also for local artists looking for space to showcase their talent to the public.

    Thanks to blogger Cindy Taylor for this review! Based on the photos above (and if I was in Cape Town), I’d be making Field Office a pretty regular Coffice destination.

    Much luck to them!
