Exquisite coffee, roasted with pride and perfectly brewed.

Their first batch of coffee was produced in 2004 on their Terbodore farm in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. Their pursuit for the perfect cup of home roasted coffee is symbolic of everything that they strive for the moment they fire up the roaster — heritage, courage, patience and dependability.

Terbodore’s first home lies in the scenic countryside of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. Boasting a quaint farm style chic restaurant, intriguing coffee menu and majestic backdrops, their Midlands roastery is definitely a place to visit.

From roasting in a small shed on the family farm in the Midlands the business has grown to roasting beans in the Cape. They now distribute their signature hand-roasted coffee to restaurants, hotels, retail outlets and businesses alike all over South Africa. Their Franschhoek home has been instrumental in this growth.

There are few cafes in the world as stunning as Truth, a ‘steampunk inspired’ artisan coffee shop that is filled from top to bottom with metal piping and quirky old machinery. People don’t just flock there for the decor, the coffee is all hand roasted in a vintage cast iron drum, and the company supplies many of South Africa’s top hotels.
