About Bean in the Bush
Bean in the Bush was founded by Karen, a luxury lodge manager who has worked at some of the most exclusive game lodges in Limpopo.
When Karen noticed a high demand for quality local coffee among visitors to the area, both from South Africa and abroad she set out to find the purest coffee made from some of the world’s most in-demand beans. She wanted to give the coffee a local flavour, so teamed up with a small-batch roastery in Richard’s Bay, to enable Limpopo locals and tourists to buy coffee beans or ground coffee easily online.
