As the specialty coffee industry in South Africa has grown, so has the number of coffee roasteries grown. I have done my fair share of travelling around South Africa to visit different coffee shops and roasteries. It does help that my family is scattered all around, from Cape Town all the way along the coast to PE and up to Pretoria. Pietermaritzburg and Malelane also feature, as well as Empangeni. So yes we are spread far and wide.
I am always of the mindset that opinions are unique and so here is my list of SA’s best coffee roasters, well aware that yours may be a complete different list… and that’s ok.
