Origin Coffee Roasting
The Best Coffee in Cape Town
Origin roasts and serves, arguably, the best coffee in Cape Town. They're known for their quality and provide beans to around 80 city-wide establishments. I frequent their headquarters and cafe on Hudson Street whenever I'm in Cape Town for my caffeine fix. It's a trendy venue, tucked away in a small neighborhood where the Waterfront district meets the slopes of Signal Hill, making it a great place to people watch. Origin makes what they call "Montreal-style" bagels, which are a bit thin but still satisfy my cravings. For R30 their mini-breakfast includes a scrambled egg, tomatos, bacon (or mushrooms), and a bagel, and this is one of the best breakfast deals in town. If you're a caffeine addict like me, you'll want to ask for the loyalty card which will earn you a free drink every 10 stamps/beverages purchased.
