For those of you that are wonder what has happened to the Coffee Roasting Company based at Lourensford, Somerset West, read on:
|Lucien with his roaster|
It took just over 14 months after Lucien passed away for the coffee roasting company that Lucien started in 2003, to finally close its doors. The coffee roasting company based at Lorensford, was the seed of many coffee company’s that started up. Including Quaffee, which for most of the time, was a partner in bringing green (unroasted) coffee and other equipment.
It is sad to see the legacy that Lucien created, destroyed by greed and squabbling but that is the way this cookie has crumbled. I am sure that there will be many companies that have started up since then will benefit, from the innovation Lucien brought to the Cape.
To Glynis and the team our thoughts are with you, and we offer you our support.
