Overview
More
Not much has changed since we've roasted our very first batch of coffee in 2004 on the Terbodore farm in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. Sure, the batches got bigger as word of our coffee spread and our commitment to the craft grew. But despite our pursuit for the perfect cup, our Great Dane, now grey around the muzzle, still has a keener interest in the whereabouts of farm cats rather than the rich, defined flavours of the perfect brew. Still his presence has become symbolic of everything that we strive for the moment we fire up the roaster - heritage, courage, patience and dependability. From the first day we started roasting, we took great care to procure only the finest green coffee beans. Combining skill and patience, we sift and roast our beans, consistently producing coffee we gladly put our name to. We pride ourselves on being one of the most honest coffee brands around, not compromising on the taste and never forgetting who we are. Then there is our companion's courage, something we needed in no short supply to open our second roastery in the Cape Winelands. Thanks to this leap of faith, we can now make our coffee available to connoisseurs around the country - still produced with the same love and meticulous care as we did in 2004. We hope that you enjoy our product and craft as much as we do. Because as artisanal coffee roasters we feel that life is long enough for a slowly percolated cup, even in dog years.

This is a pleasant little coffee shop with a lovely garden. Service is friendly and helpful. There is a gift shop. You can buy their coffee to take home. We bought a package of the Ethiopian Kana Yirgacheffe and continue to enjoy it.

Popped in for a late lunch and were not disappointed, the menu is quite small but there is something for everyone, more "brunch" than lunch we were very happy with the quality of food on offer and the service was super
