Candid Portraits 4: The Coffee Maker

The Coffee Corner in Morton Street, Stanford, South Africa is the place where villagers gather, play games, do their wireless computer work, talk and talk, pamper their babies, relax, read the newspaper, pick up a fast snack, dream, cry, laugh and above all enjoy a delicious cup of coffee and affordable food.
Although the people saw me one morning walking around with camera-equipment virtually all pictures are made the ‘candid camera way’.
 

Most probably the most important personality in the village is Mister S. (phonetically: Shusaki). He is also regarded as one of the best operators of the coffee machine  and creates coffees with a consistent top quality. The owners of the Coffee Corner (Peter and Maureen Wolters) send Mr. S. to a coffee makers training when they started the business but after a few hours they got a telephone call from the trainer saying he could not teach Shusaki anything; “The guy is a natural coffee maker”, he said.

Hence this photo gallery dedicated to the “Best Coffee Maker of The Western Cape”. Yes: he is the guy with the hat, occasionally with a cap ;).
