Bean here yet?
We’ve seriously been wondering where this place has bean our whole lives. Hello Joburgers, if you haven’t popped in for a cuppa joe at Bean There Coffee Company, then we suggest you cancel your plans and head over to 44 Stanley Avenue in Milpark.
This simply decorated, bright and open space fits in perfectly with the look and feel of 44 Stanley. The crisp white walls are covered in pictures – not of coffee cups and beans, but of the people who grow and cultivate them, and of the processes taken to make a great cup of coffee. The place smells amazing, and as the staff hand over your fresh latte, they’ll flash you a killer smile that will make you feel like an old friend.
The Hello Joburg team recently popped in for a delicious chocolate and coffee pairing, which saw Bean There pair up with Chocoloza – Joburg’s hottest handmade chocolate shop. Coffee and choccies for breakfast? Needless to say, we were not disappointed!
They may have tempted us in with chocs, but the coffee and stories are why we hung around. Bean There started in a garage in 2005, with the aim of helping African coffee producers become sustainable by personally sourcing quality coffee through Direct Fair Trade. Twelve years later, that’s exactly what they’ve done, gathering a host of fans along the way.
The team is dedicated to finding the best single origin, unblended coffee beans, and have done so, culminating flavours from Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Burundi and the DR Congo. In fact, Bean There is the only roaster of DR Congo Coffee in the country! While the brand continues to grow, they ensure that their carbon footprint remains small, and firmly planted in African soils.
Their coffee perfection, but what we love the most is that Bean There sell their fabulous beans so you can have the perfect cup – everyday. They also have an incredible array of home brewing gear, espressoequipment and filter equipment for you to buy. Now you really have no excuse to drink bad coffee!
