a brief history

Where it began

Our business was established in 1996 as Sumatran Pride Coffee - a small setup that was started from a garage in Port Elizabeth, primarily supplying the end user.
Since these humble beginnings, the company has gone from strength to strength, to where we are currently servicing both the commercial industry as well as the end user throughout the Eastern Cape and into parts of the Western Cape

The current owner – Deidre - took ownership in 2007 and decided to change the name to Sumatran Premium Coffee and started creating brand awareness which today is synonymous with quality coffee at affordable prices.  Additionally, she recruited various members of her family, culminating into what we have today…a proudly family-run concern with traditional family values of commitment, integrity and a belief in the Personal Touch!
Over the past 7 years we’ve established a highly reliable Technical department for repairs, servicing and support on most types of industrial and automated machinery.  A focus area for us moving forward is to share our passion and knowledge of coffee with other like-minded people, by hosting various coffee related events throughout the year, such as An Introduction to Coffee; Coffee Tasting Evenings, Brewing Methods; Cupping; Latte Art, Experimenting with Roasting, etc.


To share our passion for coffee and our knowledge to all who love it as much as we do. We want to be part of and contribute to the coffee industry growing from strength to strength. To see baristas receive the reward and recognition that they deserve as a Specialty Coffee Maker.
