Cape Town’s coffee roasteries

They do it by hand; meet the roasters making our 'black gold'!

Cape Town has developed a real coffee culture within the past few years. Lucky for us, others do the work and roast the beans, all we have to do is lean back and decide whether we want it with or without milk and enjoy our cuppa coffee. We got in touch with some great artisan coffee roasters in and around Cape Town and asked a few questions; read with a cup of coffee, of course.

Anthony’s Golden Cup Coffee Shop
Run by Anthony himself, this unassuming coffee shop on Loop Street makes delicious coffee. He roasts on siteand in his shop, you get freshly roasted beans from South America and Africa, raw beans, coffee blends, flavoured coffees, coffee machines, muffins, rusks and, of course, a fresh cup of coffee. Anthony has been in the coffee business for over 56 years, so he must be one of the oldest coffee-men in Cape Town.

Origin Coffee Roasting
They call themselves 'the artisan roasters of Africa' because they emphasise a hands-on mastery of all the aspects of the coffee craft - from the careful selection of green beans, to the precise roasting, blending, grinding and pouring of the coffee. By giving credence to the artisans of this world, Origin harks back to a pre-industrial, pre-mass-produced era when artisans took immense pride in their vocations, and superb quality was taken as a given. "Artisan roasting differs from commercial roasting in that it is never done to a set formula,” says Kane Kossew, marketing director of Origin. “All of our green beans have been grown, harvested and processed by growers who have been selected for their immense passion and dedication to quality. We roast, taste, analyse, and roast again to arrive at the ultimate result."

Truth Coffee Roastery
'We roast coffee. Properly.' and 'Coffee as a religion' – these are Truth’s mission statements.TruthRoastery specialises in producing artisanal-style coffees for the coffee geeks out there. They roast on a vintage Probat with modern electronics since the vintage roaster drum is cast iron and this seems to make coffee taste better. “Why the electronics? So we can see what the hell we are doing!" says owner David Donde. Indeed, he’s been preaching the joys of artisanal coffee to anyone who’ll listen, and he’s been quietly training up the best baristas in the country.

Deluxe Coffeeworks
Judd Francis Nicolay and Carl Wessel roast each batch to its optimum level, deduced through rigorous tasting and after-hours rum sessions. The beans are sourced from all over the world, "If it’s good we’ll buy it". All roasting is done on the premises at the shop, Deluxe Coffeeworks in Church Street next to Mandela Rhodes Hotel in the heart of Cape Town’s city bowl. There you can taste, buy beans and enjoy the great music and general caffeine craziness.

Rosetta Roastery
The team of roasters, cuppers and baristas is passionate about coffees that are as unique and character-filled as the people who drink them. Based in Woodstock, they import single origin and estate coffees from South and Central America, Africa and Asia, micro-roasting each one to best present its unique personality. Rosetta Roastery sells roasted beans, ground or unground, offers home deliveries, and provide bespoke mobile espresso bars for executive functions (both indoor and outdoor).

Espressolab Microroasters
It’s the coffee hot-spot in Woodstock’s Old Biscuit Mill. Esspressolab uses Nordic roasting principles for a softer palate weight, experimenting with methods that result in glass cups for our Americanos (slower sipping means a naturally sweeter taste) and a certitude about the quality of your crema. "We roast coffee from single farms, estates and cooperatives and look to establish relationships with growers and exporters, always looking at sustainable, fair and equal trade."

Haas
The extension of 'the haas design collective' roasts coffee beans from farms across the world in colourful Bo Kaap. The roastery and coffee shop specialises in rare and exotic coffees and offers the world’s most expensive coffee, 'kopi luwak', a coffee with the most unusual provenance. It is made from the beans of coffee berries which have been eaten by the Asian Palm Civet and other related civets, then passed through its digestive tract.

Moka Coffee Roasters

"Roasting coffee by hand is all about listening for that first crack of a coffee bean and then proceeding to achieve the desired colour and surface texture for optimal aroma and the perfect roast." Moka Coffee Roasters is a small family business, lead by master roaster Theunis Delport. Theunis started the roastery in 2009 out of passion for coffee. He and his very personal roaster, “try help people to get the exact blend to suit their tastes.”

Caturra Coffee
Everyone knows the coffee brand, Caturra (established in 1994). With their East African Estate Coffee range, selected from Kenya, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe, they also qualify for an artisan producer. Not mass produced, they offer top quality roasts for coffee connoisseurs who would like to drink something special. Other than that, Caturra Coffee also supplies 2500 hotels, restaurants and coffee shops around Southern Africa. They roast at different temperatures which impacts the taste while using a Probat machine, which is a German-made drum roaster. Caturra’s slogan: Coffee is sometimes needed and other times wanted.
