Africa is the birthplace of coffee. Despite this, the majority of coffee produced is exported, with lower grade coffees imported for local consumption. Cafe Neo embodies a new approach to coffee on the African continent – a new world, if you like.
Our name, Neo, means “gift” in Tswana and this encapsulates our view of coffee as a resource that should be shared and cherished. Our fine coffee is grown in Africa, to be consumed by the African consumer.
We aspire to be the brand across Africa that provides a ‘third space’, where customers can escape, meet like-minded dreamers and create great things. Neo is thus less about a cafe chain, but more about building communities around powerful ideas, with strong links to entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation.
We are Cafe Neo; celebrating the return of coffee to its African roots, one cup at a time.
