Espresso Lab Microroasters is a specialty coffee roastery based at The Old Biscuit Mill, Woodstock, Cape Town.
Our daily quest is to find optimal ways in enjoying coffee, from sourcing small lots of freshly harvested coffee, to finding optimal roasting profiles that will reflect the terroir and origin of the coffee, showcasing complexity in flavor and a balance between sweetness and acidity.
As coffee growing areas span the globe, from Costa Rica to Indonesia, we wish we could showcase them all, but alas our range is limited to what we consider a fine selection of specialty coffee.
The coffees we select are from various botanical varieties, processes and topographical areas, affording the curious coffee drinker the opportunity to sample a wide variety of coffees and discover their differences.
The coffees we select go through an arduous journey to get to the roastery. It's after a long process of selecting the coffee, shipping, roasting it and then sampling it, do we offer it for sale. As no two palates are the same, we try not to influence your taste experience, however we try to showcase transparent, clean and complex coffees.
The farmers do the hard work, and we're their humble ambassadors.
The selection of coffees online represent our current offerings. We constantly update our menu according to new harvest arrivals.We showcase coffees from fully traceable farms, estates and cooperatives.
As roasting is a sensory craft, one that cannot be replicated every time, our attention to detail and commitment to quality is our objective. The coffees we showcase reflect our personality and we're proud to be a part of the specialty coffee community, highlighting the hard work and labor of coffee farmers worldwide.
We sell only whole bean coffee and ship via courier to the following major cities within South Africa. Pretoria, Johannesburg, Nelspruit, Durban, East London, George, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.
* Please note as we ship via courier, only physical addresses are accepted, no p.o.box.
