Our story.

Winston Thomas started working in coffee in 2014. During his engineering studies he grew a curious interest in coffee. This interest quickly developed into a passion which he pursued after graduating.

After working for some of the top roasteries in South Africa, toured the country working as a guest barista in numerous cafes and having participated in three World Barista Championships as the South African Barista Champion Winston decided to start a business of his own.
