    Beautiful photography. I see you have a lot of US roasters on your blogroll (Stumptown, Intelligentsia etc). Recommend you check out Blue Bottle as well. Best of luck in Cape Town!

      Thanks. I’ve heard a lot about Blue Bottle but I’ve never tasted their coffee or been in contact with them, I didn’t add them. Are you related to Elan from Cape Town ?

    I saw Elan today and hope when he goes to NY you take him to Cafe Grumpy.
