Our Story

Inspired by the love of coffee and travel adventures

This story didn’t start a “long, long time ago”, actually it was about June 2017.

My husband had a business trip to Japan and brought home some Japanese coffee as a gift.

We all loved the concept of this little filter (with pre-ground coffee in) that hangs over your cup and makes a single serving filter coffee.

No fuss, no gadgets AND it’s biodegradable!

We just had to share this portable pour-over experience with everyone, but we didn’t enjoy the Japanese filter coffee taste that much.  We took a trip to our local gourmet roasters and drank lots and lots of coffee, until we found a couple of blends that stood the test of a selected group of tasters.

Living in the Western Cape with its diverse fynbos and beautiful proteas, and because we love our iconic National Flower, we named our South African brand of drip filter “Protea Coffee”.

Now we are proud to share our drip filter motto with everyone – to experience life’s adventures AND enjoy gourmet coffee on the go!

Yours in coffee,
