At a time when human connections have been tested to the limit, two baristas with an entrepreneurial flair have become an integral thread of the social fabric of Greyton and Hermanus

For the 34-year-old Soa Delport-Sauls from Greyton and the 30-year-old Sibongile (Sibo) Mundienda from Hermanus, the announcement of hard lockdown was a huge shock. These two entrepreneurs each support about 10 people with their small businesses. That’s in addition to uplifting others, providing a few jobs from time to time and also handing out plasters, toilet paper, water for the dogs and even cleaning ablution facilities when the municipality forgets to do so.
A common thread in both stories is about caring for others in whichever way possible way beyond their own needs. And caring for their customers, something that is way more addictive than the cup of coffee they sell.
