Crafting Journeys, One Brew at a Time: The Rock and Roller Coffee Co. Story

Rooted in the vibrant coffee culture of Cape Town, Rock and Roller Coffee Co. was conceived in 2012. It emerged from a profound appreciation for specialty coffee and a mission to motivate cafes of all kinds to achieve unparalleled brew excellence. By the onset of winter 2014, we had breathed life into a fresh “Coffee Culture”, introducing South Africa to our unique single origins and unparalleled specialty blends.

Each bean in our collection is artfully hand-roasted, capturing the essence of its origin. Spanning across continents, our selection is crafted to cater to the myriad tastes of our clientele.

Doctor G, the luminary behind our brand, is a titan in the coffee world. A previous Western Cape Barista Champion and mentor to the 2017 South African barista prodigy, his accolades include participation in the World Roasting Cup and a commendable 6th place finish at the 2012 World Roasting Competition. Dr. G's journey started in the mid-90s, where cafes and restaurants served as the backdrop to his burgeoning passion. Over time, his focus transitioned from just coffee to investing in people, nurturing talents, and imparting his extensive knowledge to the next generation of coffee enthusiasts. Today, while he remains dedicated to expanding the Rock and Roller legacy, his heart lies in uplifting and training individuals, fostering a thriving community of coffee connoisseurs.
