Conceived in New York, designed in Toronto and made in Cape Town – Coco Safar has been a 10-year global journey to bring you a luxury coffee café experience that is extraordinary in every way
Our greatest passion is to create the world’s finest couture coffee experience and that journey starts with finding the world’s finest Third Wave specialty, auction lot, micro-lot, and award-winning coffee beans. Our curated beans are roasted in small batches for best quality in our Cape Town Roastery & Coffee Lab, ground to fine perfection and then served with the requisite care by our highly trained baristas.
Our Espresso Bar is home to the world’s first Spirit Idrocompresso machines, exclusively hand built for Coco Safar in Holland by the world’s leading designer and maker of commercial espresso machines Kees van der Westen. The Spirit Idrocompresso is a true innovation designed to deliver the most extraordinary coffee experience when pulling a fine shot of our signature house blends, curated single origin and couture estate cafés de caractère.
Wilhelm Liebenberg and Caroline Sirois are passionate food and coffee specialists having spent the best part of 20 years travelling the world in search of the finest coffee and culinary experiences. These experiences lead to many creative endeavors including opening several restaurants and café’s around the globe including Montreal, Toronto and New York.
Coco Safar is a natural evolution of this journey and their extraordinary vision to make the luxury experience, not just the domain of the privileged few, but an everyday experience for everyone.
The word “Coco” is synonymous with luxury and “Safar” means journey in many languages. Our promise to our customers is exactly that, to provide a daily journey that is extraordinary in every way – a journey beyond the ordinary.
