Today’s posts from our featured Port Elizabeth Blogger:
Dempsey’s Guest House is surrounded by delicious coffee pit stops, we are spoilt for coffee choice in Walmer.
Urban Espress owner, Donovan McLagan, National Cup Taster Champion has won the national title for fourth time in seven years. Dozens of people from regions across the country participated in the Speciality Coffee Association of Southern Africa Barista Championships, held in Cape Town earlier this year. McLagan will be heading to Dubai in September to battle it out against the best coffee specialists from 42 different countries. McLagan, a former engineer, gave up his job more than 10 years ago to start up his growing passion. “On a trip to New Zealand in 2004, I realised how big the coffee culture is over there and decided to make my own coffee, grinding my own beans, and it kind of just spiralled into a business from there,” he said.
