I’m very excited to post about this coffee company, BlackOwl Urban Coffee. Quinton got in touch with me a while back and offered to deliver some of his coffee to me in sunny Durbs. When I went to collect my box look what I found in it. I was SUPER excited to get brewing!
The story of this coffee is unlike the many others I’ve heard. Together with photographer Ursula Du Plooy, the BlackOwl Urban Coffee team embarked on a journey to capture the heart of Jozi (Johannesburg) and it’s urban coffee culture. This is what they found.
From Braamfontein to Maboneng the Jozi coffee culture is immersed in the beautiful and vibrant inner city lifestyle. On this journey they identified with two groups of coffee drinkers, the Urbanites and the Erudites. Both of these groups are described in the images above. Capturing the essence of opportunity and possibility BlackOwl Urban Coffee have identified with this culture and out of this their coffee company was born.
Single Origin, African, 100% Arabica Beans, BlackOwl Urban Coffee is chosen specifically for the Urbanite and Erudite in you to savour and enjoy every sip. From choosing the coffee – to roasting – to delivery, BlackOwl Urban Coffee are part of the whole journey.

This was rather tasty made with our cold Bruer.
