To you Rosemary, for always steaming my milk like an absolute champ! Thank you AfricaBlack! #SelatiSugar #CoffeeMagazine

Pepe & Sarah - The Gourmet Greek

My favorite barista Pepe at the blue cow deli makes sure everyone is well caffeinated, even if you're a cow 😉 #CoffeeMagazine #selatisugar #Thegourmetgreek

Sinazo & Bronwyn - Homeground Coffee Roasters

Sinazo and the beautiful ladies from Homeground Coffee Roasters have my order locked in their mind! Sinazo pretty much rings up "medium skinny cappuccino" before I say it. 😬 Definitely the best coffee shop with the friendliest and most welcoming baristas in Grahamstown! Bonus: they display #CoffeeMagazine too! I hope Sinazo wins Barista of the month with #SelatiSugar and #CoffeeMagazine
