44 Stanley – an experience gift guide

17 Nov 2022
If socks and a robe won't cut it, time to gift something unique – a local experience. Spoil someone with a great  reason to visit 44 Stanley.  From comedy, to wine and chocolate experiences, we found plenty on offer to add a little sparkle.  

Full of beans – Bean There Coffee Roastery

Join Bean There's cupping mornings to experience coffee diversity first hand. They explain the process of coffee from crop to cup as you become more aware of the individual aromas and flavour profile of each coffee. Cupping sessions take place every Saturday from 10:00-12:00, and are limited to 10 people so booking is essential. 

For a more in-depth coffee experience, gift a home barista course which takes place once a month in the dedicated training school above the café. Read more about this coffee brewing course to achieve that perfect café-style espresso at home. 

Wine – Voisin

Boutique wine shop Voisin Bread & Wine hosts regular Saturday tasting sessions from 11:00  showcasing interesting new wave South African wines. Entrance is free. 

Bubbly and chocolate – Chocoloza

There’s always room for bubbly and chocolate so head to artisanal chocolate shop Chocoloza next. They host an MCC and chocolate pairing event in their cozy chocolate lounge at 44 Stanley on Saturdays at 14:00 and 16:00. This decadent tasting experience pairs Chocoloza's best pralines with a variety of Montpellier Methode Cap Classiques. Book tickets here, but walk-ins are welcome if there's space available.
