Welcome to From Coffee With Love, in which I present in a fun and enjoyable reading manner about all things coffee, from a love perspective of course. A bit about me.. I fell in love with coffee back in 2005 – by Love, I don’t mean hearts, kisses and all that butterfly in your stomach stuff, but from a passionate perspective. After all, despite what some scientists say, coffee is really good for you (I have lots of proof), as long as you treat it with LOVE and PASSION translated as CARE and SERIOUSNESS. I then decided to read as much as possible about it and learn from top experts like WBC winners like James Hoffmann.
After amassing a lot of knowledge I decided to start my own blog in 2007. In 2010, I showed my love, by moving to Cape Town (it looked nice) to open my coffee shop, Escape Caffe. It was tough to start but as soon as my wife persuaded me to let everyone one know one of my secrets, we broke even. Why ? it was the only coffee shop in the World owned by a Nobel Peace Prize winner, which I won with my colleagues at the UN-IAEA in 2005, plus a food writer told everyone that I and the best cheesecake in Cape Town – my secret recipe is on another website.
WORK WITH ME
As of March 2020, I am now a coffeepreneur ( I love this word) and will offer;
- Advice on how to set up a quality focused coffee business
- Advice on coffee shop operation including a competency based Human Resources management plan.
- Advice on how to find your niche based on your personality and goals
- Participating in events to speak about the coffee chain and economics ( I studied economics, have an MBA and want to help coffee farmers get access to more fair markets)
I’m looking forward to me next coffee adventure, probably in Dubai, so let me know if you want to collaborate, start a coffee business online, have me speak at an event and more. Until then check my blog and instagram.
Please feel free to comment on any post and correct me when I’m wrong.
