Origin Coffee Roasting has been called the Grand Daddy of Speciality Coffee in South Africa. Among the first artisan roasters in the country and quite possibly the very first in Cape Town, Origin was instrumental in planting the seeds that grew into the thriving coffee scene the Mother City enjoys today.
From the first day, back in 2005, Origin focused on more than just roasting however. They also set up a training school to help build a foundation for a South African coffee industry. That is why you'll find coffee professionals who spent time at Origin at many of the younger roasteries that we work with. As one such coffee professional once said to us: "All roads lead to Origin".
Origin has built on this legacy, continuing to cultivate South African coffee talent while also using its scale to benefit from relationships with some of the best coffee producers around the world. Their roasting team skilfully brings out the best in a broad and constantly changing selection of coffees which we are privileged to share with you here.
