Fellow Journeywoman: Mariette Loubser


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

My name is Mariette. I put the love on your table via my floral and decor design business, varsliefde. Dorky dancing in public makes me happy.

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

Legado’s beans, my housemates mini grinder, hot milk, a plunger and a smile wrapped round my coffee-loving face.

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?

Guatemala Antigua. I love a full-bodied Coffee and the Guatemalan is very well rounded for me.

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

Ooh, this is difficult, I do love a “stukkie” treat. But, when I look forward to a good cup of coffee, I prefer to enjoy it without the competition of another taste.

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?

Where she went, people met Jesus.
