Meet Menzi: our newest barista extraordinaire at Zizi’s Cafe! ☀️🏖️ 

Menzi our BaristaMenzi eats, sleeps and breathes coffee – and has a passion for meeting new people!

But hey, let him tell you more about himself in our interview with Barista Bru! 

Q: Where are you from?
📍 Born and bred on the South Coast, living near Margate in Nositha.

Q: Describe yourself in a nutshell.
🌈 Always smiling, kind-hearted, and armed with a wicked sense of humour.

Q: What’s your coffee-fueled dream?
Apart from coffee, my dream is to manage a PSL football team. I’m a soccer fanatic, and the local flair in our leagues gives the sport a unique charm! Currently, I’m eyeing a short course with SAFA. (Go, Menzi!)

Q: Your favourite coffee fix?
Shh, it’s a secret… But the Choccochino is my ultimate indulgence. A scoop of hot choc and a shot of coffee – absolute bliss.

Q: How did your coffee journey begin?
🌍 At first, I wasn’t much into coffee. Meeting Jeff Stopforth from Beaver Creek changed that. His global coffee adventures inspired me to dive into the world of coffee and perfect latte art. Now I dream of Milan and savouring coffees worldwide!

Q: Your passion beyond coffee?
Soccer is my heartbeat. I’m all about Barcelona and Kaizers Chiefs b(ut I can’t say that now because they’re not doing too well). I’ve evolved from introverted to outgoing, thanks to my love for sports and connecting with people.

Q: Top spot to eat on the coast?
🍕 Debonairs Pizza Margate – a large chicken tikka, please!

Q: Your South Coast playground?
I’m on fire at TB Molefe Sports Grounds in Gamalakhe, playing soccer over weekends.

Q: Ideal night-out destination?
🎉 Senzi’s in Margate sets the stage for an epic time!

Q: If you were an animal?
🐶 A loyal dog! Just like a well-treated pup, I’d show endless love to those I care about. Always excited and always ready to give love back.

We hope you enjoyed getting to know Menzi as much as we have!
