In a few days time, Michael Macaskill (R) and Hugh Pines from our Franschhoek roastery will be starting their climb up Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
Their aim? To make an espresso on the summit with a modified La Pavoni lever machine. Yes, that’s the brass beauty sitting between them. Talk about a challenge!
Stay tuned to our social media platforms to see how they do.
Good luck boys!
Some Kilimanjaro stats:
- Highest free-standing mountain in the world
- Highest mountain in Africa
- The summit Uhuru Peak is 5,895m above sea level
- The mountain is a dormant volcano which is comprised of three volcanic cones, Shira, Kibo (on which Uhuru summit stands) and Mawenzi
