The moment you drive through the gates you fell in love with the scenery. All you can see are rows and rows of lush green coffee trees. For a quite awhile we have wanted to do a long table lunch at Zentvelds and when we finally decided on a date the excitement grew. Rebecca & John offered our guests a tour of their working farm & roaster. They got to listen, taste, smell, feel and see coffee; as guests learnt the story of coffee 'from crop to cup'. They gained an understanding of coffee growing, their sustainable practices, roasting and packing while also enjoying a three course lunch with freshly brewed Zentvelds Coffee.
The menu consisted of;
Grazing Boards of cured meat, cheeses, antipasto, olives, pesto & cucumber bites, herb goats cheese & mushroom crostini and mini quiches.
Koftas with green cous cous and pistachio nuts
Beef cheeks with creamy mash, wilted greens & red wine sauce
Vegetable pinch pot pie with warm freekeh salad
Finishing with dessert:
Tiramisu Layered Cake
Rhubarb & strawberry jelly pots with ginger cream
I recommend a visit out to this beautiful plantation, you wont be disappointed and making sure you attend our next long table lunch.
