Its all about the beans
A great cup of coffee starts with great beans and with great freshness. Our coffee is Blend No.222 from Arabikaz Coffee Roasters, an outstanding micro-roastery right here in Hermanus
There are only two types of coffee beans in the world: Robusta and Arabica.
Robusta coffee is a lower grade of coffee that is typically grown at lower elevations. It has a more astringent flavour and a high amount of caffeine. The trees are easier to grow and maintain and, as a result, the beans are cheaper. Our roaster says he won't touch the stuff!
All our beans are Arabica. It contains about half of the caffeine of robusta and has more desirable flavours and aromas.
