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 “fresh from the farm”, should ideally be purchased at the source – 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 it’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. There’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.
