Tucked away in the scenic hills of Hillcrest is a magical coffee place that coffee lovers swear by. Started by Craig Charity in 2012, the brand boasts its own coffee roaster with its own coffee brand; Lineage Coffee. The airy interior with rustic wooden finishes has a distinct steampunk vibe that fits in perfectly with the green hills of Hillcrest. The coffee shop boasts an array of awards including first place in Durban’s coveted KZN Café Society Awards for the best coffee in 2016 and best barista personality. Described as a coffee with a “chocolatey aftertaste” that stays in your mouth long after you finish, this coffee shop is well worth the drive into the hills.
