Other than when pull-tab comes off before you can get the tin open, or missing a loop when you’re putting a belt on, there are few things more irritating than coffee stores. Of course, the coffee is delicious, but you’re bombarded by nonsensical phrases like a Short and Dry or Unleaded With Wings and getting your daily caffeine fix there means dropping half your pay cheque. Keep it DIY and pay R249 for a coffee workshop with SA Coffee Club.
Though you’d think that wine is the only sippable with its own lingo and intricacies, coffee is just as thrilling and full of surprises once you get right down to it. At the Stil Roastery, hosted by some of the country’s leading coffee experts, SA Coffee Club presents a way for you to delve a little deeper into the world of the bean and learn to make your own taste-bud tingling cappuccino.
