Description: Origin was started by Joel Singer in 2006. He wanted to offer South Africans exceptional, quality roasted coffee from around the world. Eleven years later, this pursuit continues. Joel and his team are passionate about coffee. From the sourcing of green beans, to precise roasting, blending, grinding and pouring of coffee. Take the time to visit us at Origin Headquarters in Cape Town where you can meet the artisans, watch the roasting, sit in on a cupping session and get to taste the coffee while it’s still fresh and expressive. Grab a seat at our Brew Bar for some alternative brew methods and new coffee discoveries.

WOW. This place has all the right vibes. Exposed brick. Natural wood tables. A stunning espresso machine. But how is the coffee? PERFECTION.
We stopped by on a Sunday morning and were seated quickly. I ordered an iced hazelnut latte and my husband had a mocha. We also ordered ricotta flapjacks and the Brussels Benedict. Everything was delicious! Our server, Miriam, provided excellent and timely service! We ordered an almond croissant for take-away on our way out and it was the perfect afternoon snack, devoured in about 30 seconds! We're already planning our next visit!

Had informative and enjoyable coffee tasting at the Brew Bar today. Learnt a lot about coffee (aroma, acidity, clarity and body) and different prep methods! Followed by lunch which was flavourful and well priced. All round recommended. Thanks Neo and team!

We went for breakfast on Women's Day. The waiter forgot about us initially, I had to go call him so not a good start to our visit.
Our coffee was cold but delicious. I drank it anyway and he advised us to ask for extra hot next time.
Our breakfasts were really great! Eggs Benedict with bacon. Simply divine. My first breakfast was a bit cold, so I sent it back but the taste was def there!
The baker in the kitchen was busy making carrot cakes and we ordered those straight out of the oven - DIVINE!
A good experience all in all but I will move on to the next spot to try Eggs Benedict :).

Origin Coffee did not disappoint. A bit larger than the chic coffee shops I am use to in Australia. A good vibe. Coffee 8.5 / 10 not bad. A great place to hang out on free WiFi and SOP coffee in Cape Town.

A friend and I went for a quick coffee as Google recommended this place. Sat at a large wooden table shared with others. Newspapers on the table was a great gesture. The waitress explained a bit about the menu, different beans and the different ways they prepare them and recommended we go sit at the bar to see the process once we chose our beans and method. (The menu can be a bit iverwhelmig but take time to talk to the staff and they'll help you to make a decision) Friendly funky guy at the coffee bar was lovely and walked us through the 2 methods we chose. Had a nice chat too. They also have tastings and a barista school and roastery at the top floor which I definitely will go back for to see as we stayed much longer than planned and had other arrangements. Another waiter automatically poured us water too which is a great gesture I always look out for. True coffee lovers (and everyone else) must go!
