How many of you love a good coffee? I know I do! But where do you go to find it?
There is this brilliant, or so I have heard, coffee shop in 36 Buitenkant St, Cape Town City Centre, Cape Town, 8000, South Africa.
Now isn't that a good reason to Travel?
For those of you not in the know, coffee beans originated from Ethiopia, the Arabica coffee bean plant as it is known. Arabica grows on bushes and Robusta (another fruit) grows on trees ...the ideal conditions for these to grow is along the equator at different heights. Generally in the mountains.
The beans are picked by hand because of the difficulty of using machines on mountains, but Brazil has an automated system where the land is flat.
So now you know a little about coffee go and make yourself a cup or take that long needed vacation and do it in Steampunk style at Truth Coffee Roasting....
