Motherland Coffee Company pioneers a movement that reclaims Africa’s coffee heritage – a rebirth, renaissance and revolution of the African coffee industry that brings patrons the finest coffees from the mother continent. A store has recently been opened in Bedford Village, Bedfordview.
According to co-founder Robert-Ernest Maud, ‘Coffee began in Africa, and we believe Africa is the future. That’s why all our baristas are meticulously trained, motivated and inspired coffee enthusiasts, with the knowledge and expertise to create coffee we can be proud of.
‘We are not just another cup of coffee. We’re a bold revolution that aims to uplift the regions from where our produce originates. Through fair trade practice, and the pursuit of social justice, we source a variety of beans from a number of respected African coffee producing co-operatives and small farmers, paid for at a fair price. This helps uplift and support these communities.’
Customers can expect a relaxed and warm atmosphere at the Bedfordview store, which also offers alternative milks like macadamia as well as cafe style food. The menus bring customers the best from local producers, farmers and dairies with a focus on quality and ethical sourcing. Bedford Village’s menu includes breakfast buns, wraps, flatbreads, avo toasts, sandwiches, wraps (also available in gluten-free) and sweet treats.
