The December holidays are upon us and a nice long getaway is surely on the cards for many. Perhaps you’re road-tripping across the country, or you’re hiking in the Drakensberg. Maybe you’re going on a boat trip on the Vaal. Whatever you’re doing, the last thing you’d want is to go without coffee.

Bean There – the first roaster of DRC coffee in South Aftica – has compiled a quick and easy guide to assist you with your holiday packing. A guide specifically to help you decide which coffee apparatus to take along. Look at the list below as you make this important decision.

  1. AreoPress – This is a light, durable and easy-to clean coffee brewing method. You’ll only need one minute to brew a cup of coffee.
  2. One-cup filters – If you need a compact and easy to carry solution, then look no further than one-cup filters. All you do is add ground coffee and hot water.
  3. Travel Press – For the coffee pundit who remains on the move, the travel press is the way to go. It comes in a single-serving or multiple serving sizes which means there is enough to share!
  4. Cold-brew set – To turn coffee into a sundowner, go with the cold-brew set. Mix your cold brew with a dash of tonic and you’re on your way.

As Jonathan Robinson, founder of Bean There Coffee Company says, “Coffee is the mainstay of any good adventure.” The aim of the list is to ensure that you never have to travel without it!

The morning coffee before a full day of holiday activities is unmissable. It also gives you a change to stop and take in your surroundings; it allows you to appreciate where you are.

Make sure you stock up on holiday coffee at Bean There’s coffees are ethically sourced from Ethiopia, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, DR Congo and Kenya and their DRC Virunga coffee is 100% Ecocert Organic Certified, along with their Ethiopia Sidamo.
