Coffee:- Origin – the artisan roasters of Africa

“We call ourselves the artisan roasters of Africa because we emphasize a hands-on mastery of all aspects of coffee crafting – from the careful selection of our green beans, to the precise roasting, blending, grinding and pouring of coffee. By giving credence to the artisans of this world, we hark back to preindustrial, premass-produced era when artisans took immense pride in their vocations, and superb quality was taken as a given. Every link to our coffee chain has been painstakingly forged with the same passion, patience and pride in our craft. And this commitment doesn’t end at our door; wherever Origin is poured, you’ll know that it’s safe to drink the coffee. It will always be freshly roasted, ground and poured to perfection by an Origin-trained barista.” We have 5 Barista’s on site.

We are proud to be serving a perfect extraction of Origin with every cup.

Tea:- Tea Merchants

“There are three beverages in the world that revolve and interchange according to preference, importance and priority. These are namely Wine, Coffee and Tea. In the West… wine and coffee dominates the culture of drinking. In the East, it is our dearly loved tea that plays an extremely important role in the mindset and daily lives of people. When tea is mixed with the correct energy, the correct temperature, the appropriate infusion time and the right state of mind, all of its wonders and glories are unlocked.”

We served a range of loose leaf teas in beautiful glass teapots, equipped with a timer to provide the ultimate tea drinking experience.
