Dan Erasmus is a part of the South African coffee community. You may recognise his noteworthy beard from around Durban (Colombo Coffee) or more recently, Johannesburg with Firebird Coffee. He was the 2013 South African AeroPress Champion and he has a bright future in coffee, we can't wait to see what he does next. Terrible news has recently struck his family.
His younger brother Emil (only 16!), a talented musician (a flautist) part of the KZN Youth Orchestra, was diagnosed with bone cancer earlier this year and the family is doing everything in their power to get him healthy again.
We know there are so many families suffering with the struggle of affording proper care for this disease, but every bit helps and if you can help young Emil Erasmus, I'm sure karma will reward you with some delicious coffee somewhere along the road.
