So for the past few months we’ve been toying with the idea to open a more retail-based coffee bar, seeing as our roastery has become busier regarding operations and manufacturing.
We took our time to locate a spot and in March we were actually confronted with an opportunity to sublet a small space from a current food/snack shop in Techno Business Park based just outside Stellenbosch. We went to look at the space and realized it’s based right in the middle of all Capitec’s offices and seeing that there’s no specialty coffee served in this area we figured we should give it a shot (literally). For us it made sense as it would be the first time we would be doing this sort of outlet and with Techno Park only being about 3km from our roastery, we would be able to service it quick and efficiently.
Moving forward we will look to collaborate with some other artisanal products & peeps.
At this stage we are selling some artisan ice cream (yes … even in winter this product flies out the door). Jacques and his team at Ice Cream Community are continually working on different infusions of fantastic local ingredients and hand-made ice cream goodness! We are also selling ‘The Coffee Mag’, a pioneering magazine of unrivalled quality, birthed here in Azanzi & focussed on informing & educating the coffee drinking public. The response in Technopark so far has been very positive, we are enjoying some good support! Here is a twitter comment from a local fan:
People can pop around for a cup brewed by our Master Barista, Papaya, during the following times:
- Mon-Fri 07:00 – 16:00
- 19 Quantum Road Techno Park Stellenbosch
We also sell bags of our coffee (we will maybe even have some guest roasteries in the future), as well as some alternative home brewing methods.
Viva Coffee, Viva!
