We are a micro-roastery, and take great care and pride in roasting our 100% Arabica coffees to perfection in small batches.
Our roastery, shop and espresso bar is in the Maluti Highlands Centre, where you can sit and relax with a cup of freshly roasted, freshly ground and perfectly prepared coffee and enjoy the beautiful view of Mount Horeb.
According to owner Chris Pefanis: Coffee should be treated as any other fresh produce, and as for any fruit or vegetables which are at their best â€œfresh from the farmâ€, should ideally be purchased at the source â€“ a coffee roastery. It is then that the real intricacy and depth of flavours can truly be experienced. Fresh produce can be frozen, powdered, vacuum-sealed or preserved in some way or another, but itâ€™s never as good as The Real Thing. Clarens is in the fortunate position to have one such establishment, and has been since late 2009.
When we have a balance of the many combinations of flavours, aromas and roasts at hand, or a leaning towards any one outstanding flavour or aroma, coffee truly becomes a gourmet experience, like good red wine. Thereâ€™s nothing wrong with blending beans to produce an excellent result; but excellent coffee need not be blended, like a varietal vs. a blended wine.
