Here you will find the probably most southerly grown coffee in the world!
  • The first plants were imported from Kenya and cultivated since the 1960s, since the 1980s only Arabica.
  • There are only 2 coffee plantations: the Beaver Creek Coffee Farm on the Indian Ocean as well as the Transkei Coffee Company, 100 km south.
  • Since the production volumes are very low, of which only a fraction is exported and the quality is high, South African coffee is regarded as an exclusive rarity.
  • South African Coffee is full-bodied with a fine acidity and has a delicate flavor and spicy.
  • South African Coffee is thus more like the Central American coffee than the African one.
