Recently we got the chance to tour the coffee farm of Assagay Coffee (available locally).
It's a complete tour from seedlings to tree and fruit to dried bean, followed by the sorting and roasting. The process is very labour-intensive and a lot of love and skill goes into a cup of coffee. The roasting part is the most complicated because that affects the flavour so significantly.
After the tour we were treated to a cup of coffee and some yummy banana loaf and pecan pie in the farm coffee shop.
Banana loaf (baked in a mini loaf tin) and pecan pie.
You can go on a tour too, they're not very far from central Durban. Contact them on 0317821268 or 083640223.
