Fellow Journeyman: Jacques Albertyn


If you could leave a message in a bottle (a very small message in a very small bottle), how would you introduce yourself?

Hi, I’m Jacques, I’m an artist

What is your coffee-making ritual? (which brewing method do you use)

Bialetti and when I’m lazy I go buy a Cortado

(Watch his home video here below)

If you could only drink one coffee origin for the rest of your life, what would it be and what do you enjoy about it?

Currently – Legado, La Palma Microlot, Its just the best bean since sliced bread!

Tasty treat with your coffee or pure, straight-up and solo?

Depends on the mood, mostly straight-up, but if there is a Meraki pear tartlet to spare, i wouldn’t think twice about it.

At Legado we are inspired by the pioneers and explorers of old, breaking open new frontiers & changing landscapes. If you were one day pondered upon as such a character in history, what would you like to be remembered for?

I would want to be remembered for being that guy that made the best ice cream ever!

(Buy his ice-cream at Meraki, Ryneveld Street, Stellenbosch or visit his website, Ice-cream Community)
