  • 7 Things I Learned Interning At Cape Coffee Beans
    As an intern at Cape Coffee Beans from the beginning of June to August, I learned more about coffee than I ever expected. As your stereotypical college student who is always on the go, I never got to spend time brewing speciality coffee. I always just grabbed a cafe latte or americano to go, thinking that was all I would ever need. After spending hours on hours working with different types of coff...

  • What is the point of coffee?
    When I started Cape Coffee Beans, I didn’t really think about this question. Coffee was just fun, interesting, and at that time very new to me. I thought I saw a business opportunity in something which stirred a bit of passion and enjoyment, so I jumped in. I now look at coffee through a very different lens; a few years running a business is bound to change one’s perspective. Experience has given ...

  • Why we don’t sell pre-ground coffee
    When I launched Cape Coffee Beans, there were a few important decisions that I had to make about what type of coffee we would and would not sell. Not selling capsules was an easy one (perhaps a topic for a future post) but I did mull over the question of whether we would sell pre-ground or not, ultimately deciding not to. Recently I’ve had a few customers ask about the availability of pre-ground ...

  • 9 things I learned about coffee in 2016
    2016 was a big year for Cape Coffee Beans - as a business, and also from a coffee education perspective. After 3 years of running this online store for coffee lovers, quite a few cups have been consumed. I feel privileged to be able to say that most of them were delicious, many of them were eye-opening, and the variety was incredible. New years are a great time to spend a moment reflecting, and s...

  • 5 Reasons To Love Manual Coffee Brewing
    There are a lot of different ways to make coffee. For hundreds of years, people have been brewing it simply by crushing beans with a mortar & pestle and combining them with water over a fire. While this is still common in some parts of the world, in many others, coffee brewing is inextricably linked with machinery now. From espresso machines in cafés to filter machines on kitchen counters, applia...

  • Why Would You Buy Your Coffee Beans Online?
    It's an obvious question and certainly one that I am asked fairly frequently.

So, in this first post for our newest blog, I thought I'd start by outlining why I think buying your coffee beans online is a good idea. I'd like to clarify up front that none of the points belo...

  • Tribe Coffee - Roasting To The Beat Of Their Own Drum
    We think that all of the roasters that we work with are pretty unique - in fact, we’ve selected them specifically because they have something special to offer, but it’s hard to argue that in the world of South African coffee, Tribe has a particularly unique personality! You only need to visit their headquarters in Woodstock and have a look around to realise that Tribe does things its own way, and ...

  • Legado Coffee Roasters - Stellenbosch's Speciality Coffee Legacy
    While Legado Coffee Roasters was established in 2010, the idea to set up a roastery had been in the making for the better part of a decade at that point. Legado's founders knew they wanted to get into speciality coffee, but they decided to bide their time to find the right moment, set of circumstances and business model. That moment eventually arrived when they tracked down what may have been the...

  • Origin - The Grand Daddy of Cape Town Coffee
    Whenever you walk into Origin Coffee Roasting's HQ on Hudson street, it's always bustling. Despite having one of the larger cafés in Cape Town, the tables always seem to be full and there are usually people queuing for takeaway coffees as well. You might wonder how this can be, in a city so spoiled for choice when it comes to coffee, but it only takes a couple of visits to understand. The thing i...

  • Quaffee - Constantia's Hidden Coffee Gem
    We learned of Quaffee in the best way possible - through another coffee roaster. It was a bit of a surprise to hear that there was an artisanal coffee roaster nestled away at the back of Buitenverwachting Wine Farm but it certainly sounded worth investigating. It quickly became clear that Quaffee is nothing short of a hidden gem, flying under the radar but roasting some truly fantastic coffees. Q...

    One only has to take a glance at the pricing board on the wall of Rosetta Roastery's Woodstock coffee shop and headquarters to realise that they take a different approach to coffee. Down the left hand side, you find the usual list of coffee types - flat white, espresso, americano, etc. - though the presence of alternative methods like a pourover already hint at the fact that this is a place to exp...

  • Truth - Cape Town's Coffee Cult
    When we walked into Truth's HQ, we couldn't help thinking that it looked a little bit like a scene out of a Tim Burton movie. It kept us looking around at every corner for several minutes before we thought to order. The aesthetic wasn't at all what you may have come to expect from coffee shops. The colours were dark and metallic, the staff dressed in Victorian style and the space filled with an en...

  • häzz - our favourite coffee for heroes
    It was a Saturday morning spent doing one of our favourite things - taking a couple of hours to relax and indulge at a Cape Town market. This was actually one of our first times at the Stellenbosch Slowmarket at Oude Libertas; now one of our favourites. We we were doing what we usually did at a market on a Saturday morning: wandering from stall to stall, sampling whatever looked tastiest, and accu...

  • Dear Si, Here's How To Coffee
    Dear Si, It was great to see you in Cape Town recently. Hopefully the return to dreary London wasn’t too painful!

    We were very excited to be able to make Coffee Siphons available to our customers and coffee lovers all across South Africa. However a siphon is a pretty advanced and potentially intimidating manual coffee brewing device, so we knew that a great brew guide was going to be essential. Serendipitously, our friend Mike MacDonald of Origin Coffee Roasting had just released an exceptional step by step g...

  • How To Get The Best Out Of Your French Press / Coffee Plunger
    Whether you call it a french press or a coffee plunger (or anything else for that matter), there's a pretty good chance you've got one in your home. These classic coffee makers are everywhere, but tragically, they're often held in poor regard. In reality, the biggest problem with the french press is that most people just don't use it correctly.
