Coffee with Guy (Guest Blog)

April 3, 2017


Situated near the entrance to the Noordhoek Farm Village is The Village Roast. A little thatch building with a little wooden deck. Inside you'll find Guy Chasten and his team roasting and serving fresh coffee to the locals.



After leaving the IT industry almost 10 years ago, Guy bought himself a coffee trailer and set up each morning at the BP garage in Noordhoek. Guy's sense of humour and his skills at pulling the perfect shot meant he grew a following early on. Over the years his regulars have followed him as he moved from venue to venue.



Fast forward a few years and the opportunity to open a coffee roaster at Noordhoek Farm Village crossed Guy's path. He said he couldn't say no. He had been wanting to try his hand at roasting for quite a few years, and this was the opportunity he had been waiting for.





You can ask Guy anything about the art of coffee and he has the answer. So before the coffee roaster had even been installed Guy knew which beans he needed to try and replicate this favourite brand. It was now down to experimentation and getting the ratios right. Guy nailed the first batch and from then on it was smooth sailing. 



The Village Roast sells beans and ground coffee direct to the public and is open seven days a week. Tel: +221 7891390
