Coffee On The Marc Proudly KZN Review South African Culture

iwantmycoffee Coffee Shop – Umhlanga Ridge

Earlier today after working at the amazing spot, The Sett, which I posted about the other day, I managed to pop into an awesome new spot called “iwantmycoffee” in Umhlanga Ridge.

This hidden little gem is located just above the Chris Saunders park, next to the Fluxmotion gym. It is owned by the legend Ard Matthews who is (was) the lead singer for the South African Band Just Jinjer. Ard is passionate about his coffee and music, so it was only natural when he opened the coffee shop where he broadcasts his online radio station called “iwantmyradio” (you see what he did there?)

The coffee shop offers free wifi, and the most awesome coffee. The walls are painted from top to bottom in chalkboard paint, and have all sorts of quotes from various celebrities and leaders from around the world, scribbled all over the walls.

The coffee was awesome, and served piping hot. Ard also gave me a taster of a naturally decaffeinated bean which was pretty interesting and had a rather unique taste, which is grown in KZN as well! Apparently the sandwiches they serve are world-class as well !

If you ever in the Umhlanga Ridge Area, I highly recommend popping in for a cuppa, and hang around for a while. Really a gem, and must visit !
