Enjoy the best coffee blends with Mastertons Coffee

BY GRAEME LUND - DECEMBER 19, 2017

Ronald John ‘Jock’ Masterton first opened ‘The Tea and Coffee House’ at 33a Queen Street (now Govan Mbeki Avenue) in Port Elizabeth on 4 December 1924, and later moved to 114 Russell Road from where this famous roastery still prepares coffee today.

Three generations on, their roasting process is the same today as it was when Jock first opened his roastery, using sight, sound and smell to skilfully roast his coffee to perfection.

Masterton’s produce no less than 22 different blended coffees and a wide variety of dessert coffees.  It is obvious, that in all aspects, this roastery takes great care of their beans. 

All their coffees are made from Arabica beans and are roasted in small batches in Probat Roasters. In addition, they obviously want their coffees to be well-preserved as their packaging, with its one-way valve, ensures that the coffee does not go stale.

Our tasting team thoroughly enjoyed one of Masterton’s premium blends, the Blend 1388. This is a blend of Central American and African Arabica coffees that Masterton’s have prepared in a manner that produces a rich, dark and even crema.

We found that the espresso was well-balanced in terms of bitterness and acidity and was full of flavour. The cappuccino was lovely and much liked by our entire team. This is a coffee for everybody.

Next time you are in Port Elizabeth, visit their delightful shop at 69 Parliament Street, Central. To buy their coffee online, visit www.mastertonscoffee.co.za.
