Wongama Baleni

Wongama has had more latte's than anyone we've ever met. He hit the ground running with the coffee start up idea, bringing coffee to Khayelitsha, and the Department of Coffee was born with his colleagues. Things had been percolating for a while now and the Department of Coffee is set for big things. From meditation, to roasting, to some rather inventive ways of getting a foot in the door, Wongama takes us with him on the journey. From the first sip of a cappuccino to opening a franchise, Wongama's self belief and calm perseverence is a lesson to us all
