About Us

Highland Coffee Roastery is in the beautiful mountain resort town of Clarens in the Eastern Free State, South Africa.

We are a micro-roastery, and take great care and pride in roasting our 100% Arabica coffees to perfection in small batches.

Our roastery, shop and espresso bar is in the On The Square Centre, where you can sit and relax with a cup of freshly roasted, freshly ground and perfectly prepared coffee and enjoy the beautiful view of Mount Horeb.

Our Coffees

Highland Coffee Signature Blends

Espresso Blend

A blend of four origins - Brazil, Rwanda, Colombia and Guatemala - roasted medium to dark, or Full City+ to maximise the sweetness and bring the acidity of the medium roast down a little.

The resulting flavour is complex, full-bodied and rich with an irresistible aroma and chocolaty taste experience - think dark chocolate covered orange peel candies...

Great for any preparation method, but particularly suited for espresso, cappuccino and other milky drinks where the addition of milk really highlights the chocolaty aftertaste.

Mountain Blend

A blend of three medium, or City roast origins - Rwanda, Colombia and Guatemala.

Good acidity and flavour giving a medium strength, bright and refreshing taste experience, with a lemony citrus acidity and sweet floral aroma.

A versatile blend, suitable for any method of preparation hot or cold, but particularly good in French press or filter.

Single Origin Coffees


Ethiopia Yirgacheffe


Full, intense floral, sweet and perfumey aroma. Medium to high citric acidity with good body. Complex flavours of honey-blossom, fynbos, stoned fruit and berries leaving a creamy after-taste with slight cocoa powder notes. Delicious as an espresso and exceptional filtered.

Kenya Blue Mountain Type

AB Blue Mountain Type

Full fruited aroma. Good medium citric (orange) acidity with medium to high body (bold). Fruited notes of which berries, cherries and grape dominate. Quite sweet with a clean, crisp, lingering after-taste.

AB grade, Semi Washed

Complex aroma with hints of fruit and roasted nuts. Citric (lemony) acidity with good body. Fruited flavours with hints of spice (think fruitcake).


Uganda Bugisu

Bugisu Mount Elgin AA.

Great coffee – fairly heavy bodied with a syrupy mouth feel, medium to low acidity, with an overall strong but smooth taste. As a full city+ roast (med dark), the aftertaste leans towards cherry liquor.


Sumatra Mandheling


A stunning Indonesian coffee. Strong but smooth, with a syrupy super thick body, spicy aroma, slightly fruity taste and mild acidity.

This origin is one half of a traditional Mocca Java - the Java part - and makes an incredible espresso.
Really good in filter and delicious as is.

Colombian coffee is generally well balanced, which makes it a safe choice.
