Coffee is more than a drink.
It’s a catalyst for conversation and community.
We love that.
Grounded Coffee and Gathering was created as a space in the Moot where people could relax, chat, and drink good (well we think very good) coffee. Since then it has grown to become something much more special.
Through Grounded Coffee and Gathering we have made some incredible friends, been able to collaborate with various artists and business people, and together with everyone dream about what else could be.
We hope that you’ll enjoy your experience at Grounded Coffee and Gathering as much as we have enjoyed the journey that has brought us here.

We strive to offer exceptional quality and value with all of our menu items. Our espresso blend is a mixture of Brazilian, Guatemalan, and Costa Rican beans, medium dark roasted to preserve the more delicate flavours while still producing a full bodied shot. Likewise, our menu items contain the freshest ingredients sourced both from within our community and from external suppliers.
This is an informal exhibition space inside Grounded at Echo where local artists or aspiring creatives can exhibit their work. Exhibitions rotate monthly- please contact us if you would like to give it a shot!

Tjailatyd/ Tjaila time
All the figures that appear in the paintings, are of people walking next the road around ‘Tjaila time’ – all taken in Gauteng or Freestate.
While driving around, I often wonder what is going on in these ‘familiar’ strangers live’s that I see every day.
Everyone on their way home or elsewhere, each with their own lives. The people on the streets of South Africa tell us a thousand stories of hopes, dreams, joy and despair.
Lein Smuts (born 1975) graduated from University of Pretoria (BA FA) in 1997. She has extensively exhibited in Gauteng in group exhibitions since 1998. She is currently a full time artist in the picturesque ‘plattelandse’ town Rosendal in Freestate.
She is also the creator of lifestyle brand ‘Zoetlief’ and store owner of Zoetlief at Turksvy Trading in Rosendal and Anja’s Teagarden in Swavelpoort
