5 Super Cool Cafes in Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur, or more fondly known as “KL ” – is a pretty impressive city. From the snazzy Petronas Towers to the simplicity of the (absolutely incredible) street food, KL is definitely a vibrant city and the longer we stayed there the more we fell in love. Visiting more than once, we were able to […]

5 Incredible Coffee Spots in Amsterdam

So, as we sat on our laptops, planning our cafe hopping schedule, Google Maps bombarded us with specialty coffee cafes across Amsterdam. We quickly realised that with cafes popping up like groundhogs all over town, the coffee culture is fast becoming a sort of tourist attraction. The coffee scene is phenomenal, and much bigger than […]

The Best Cafe in Leiden

Aaah, Leiden. The birthplace of Rembrandt. The city if discoveries. The place with the oldest university in the Netherlands. That’s all interesting but is there any good coffee here? Well, of course, it is the Netherlands after all. For us, however, 1 cafe stood out above the rest. If you have read any of our […]

3 Amazing Cafes in The Hague

We have now been to the Netherlands on three separate occasions and what we have realised is that the coffee culture here is big – actually bigger than big…huge. Pretty much each area throughout the Netherlands has at least one specialty cafe and/or roastery. The love for coffee is incredible there and the understanding of […]

Lisbon, or as the Portuguese say, Lisboa! The home of fado (a Portuguese music genre that will melt your ears – in a good way), pasteis de nata (the most amazing custard tart) and trams – so many trams (even though they borrowed the idea from the Americans – at least they credited them by […]

Our Favourite 3 Cafes in Porto

We made it to Porto…finally – after many hours on a fairly uncomfortable bus ride from The Algarve we arrived in the land of port wine, Francesinha (a very popular five layer sandwich) and, hopefully, delicious coffee. We were so excited to explore this stunning city, high and low, in search of at least one […]

George Town, Malaysia

Ok, let’s just start by saying this is one of the best destinations we have been to on our travels. From food to markets, to the people, George Town in Malaysia really has it all, including all the coffee we could ever ask for! If you’re a coffeehead like us, then you will be glad […]

Leaving home

Yup, we have finally left South Africa. Our home. The place where we forged friendships, relationships, hardships and whatever other ‘ships’ you can think of. South Africa is where we grew up, where we went to school, where we caused trouble, where we got out of trouble, where our families are and where we met […]

Alcoholic Mazagran with Mint

We had our first Mazagran while in Lisbon in August 2017, and our lives were changed forever. This cool, sweet drink is one of the most refreshing coffee recipes we know of and, without a doubt, our favourite type of iced coffee. We decided to make this recipe while we were still in Mallorca on […]

So, how did we get here?

“Pack yourself a toothbrush dear Pack yourself a favourite blouse Take a withdrawal slip Take all of your savings out ‘Cause if we don’t leave this town We might never make it out I was not born to drown Baby come on” Ahh, The Lumineers – you speak our language! Those are the lyrics to […]
