(Presented by Morrico Specialist Coffee Equipment)
This award goes to the establishment that has consistently created an amazing cafe experience for its patrons, serves great coffee along with exceptional food, excellent service, great ambience, design and most importantly, a loyal community of patrons. This is a bustling cafe that can take the pressure of being consistently packed and still producing the same sterling quality of food and coffee.
Thank you to our regulars, Origin fans, and the industry for this recognition. We are so very, very proud to have received this award, recognizing that we remain a leader in the SA coffee & café industry so many years since we pioneered things back in 2006.
This award is particularly meaningful to us as it recognizes the shared efforts of our entire team – the floor team, the kitchen staff, the roasting team, our barista trainers and backoffice and management teams. It’s been a wonderful journey of 16+ years, and an amazing effort to stay at these levels as we come out of the COVID era.
Thanks to CoffeeMagazine / pangphotography for the lovely pic.
We are also very proud of making it to the Final 10 in three other categories in this year’s awards.
We were instrumental in helping to launch the South African National Barista Competitions, a necessary step to send people to the World Barista Championships.
Origin baristas have won the nationals and gone on to represent us at WBC on 5 occasions over the years. Two ex-Origin baristas have won a further 3 times between them (Wayne & Winston).
We have won many other awards over the years at the regional and national competitions.
