GARDEN ROUTE BUSINESS NEWS & VIDEO - You don't have to travel to the heart of East Africa to find some of the world's best coffee.
Brothers Coffee, situated in Great Brak River, has brought it to you.
Ben Ferreira's journey to become an award-winning coffee roaster started with his imagining himself in the shoes of his customers.
With him having lived in East Africa for more than 13 years among the finest plantations, coffee from various origins became sought-after gifts among his friends and family back home in South Africa.
Ben, fully comprehending the horror of having to drink bad coffee, started sending coffee to his brother in South Africa to distribute. Upon returning to South Africa, Ben bought a coffee roaster and painstakingly pursued a cup of perfection. Thus, the stage was set for Brothers Coffee to become a top brand in SA.
Today, Brothers Coffee rightfully boasts being among the best coffee roasters in South Africa, having scored tops in the Coffee Magazine Awards, which are sponsored by First National Bank. "They are like the Oscars of coffee," Ben says modestly.
The roastery, nestled against the leafy slopes of Great Brak, offers an idyllic break from the daily grind. This is where Ben shares his passion with those keen to educate their coffee palate during cupping sessions, presented on appointment. Guaranteed to be hooked after this experience, you can purchase your favourite blend and shop for other accessories.
Or, if you are in a hurry, make a convenient pit stop in Long Street at Brothers' "hole in the wall shop" to buy beans or ground coffee and grab a coffee on the go. Barista training, wholesale coffee and other coffee shop solutions are also provided.
"We are here, on your doorstep. Come visit us," says Ben.
