Top coffee finds

In honour of Starbucks hitting our shores next year, contributing decor editor Candice Botha goes shopping for all things coffee


I have a confession to make: I haven’t always been a coffee drinker. My husband, however, is a coffee connoisseur. He has a fancy machine, an array of beans and has been on several barista courses. Slowly but surely, he has converted me into a coffee-appreciator. One thing about coffee I‘ve always loved is all the accessories – mugs, pots, plungers and storage canisters are all up my alley. Here are some of my best buys, in shops now:
