SEAM Coffee Roaster @thirdspace

Being somewhat of a coffee addict and self-proclaimed connoisseur, having the perfect cup of coffee a few times a day is a requirement for my happy state of mind. I love the smell, the first sip, and the warm liquid gold that fills my soul and gets me bouncing into the day filled with a sense of action and purpose.

Winning both best new roastery 2018 and cafe of the year 2019 makes this our “must do”Jozi visit.


I have subsequently gone on a mission to find my favorite ethically sourced and locally produced roasts in Africa. One of my new favs and finds hails from my old home town of Fourways, Johannesburg, SEAM Coffee. With a far-reaching message of connecting coffee drinkers and coffee farmers through generous, transparent trade.

SEAM Coffee is delivering during this lockdown time, however as we only have 8 days to go until freedom, I highly recommend you pop into their other venture, a trendy, cool co-working space called Third Space, and spend the morning infusing with delicious coffee while creating and working up a storm while you take on BigCItyLife world domination of course!


I will be up in JHB for the Winter, and you will find me in the corner, behind my Mac, SEAM Coffee in hand, while I work on my world domination plan!
