Our Coffee Tasting Experience allows small groups to experience what quality coffee is and why it stands out. Coffee that exhibits flavours and aromas that tantalize the senses.
Hosted at Buitenverwachting wine farm in Constantia Cape Town, where our main coffee roastery is. We taste at least three coffee of distinct origins, and regions. Enquire about one of our coffee tasting experiences below.
