Sabie Valley Coffee started more than 30 years ago and is very much the story of the Buckland family. Tim Buckland planted his first coffee trees (10 hectares) in 1980 in Hazyview on the majestic Sabie valley slopes. Kim joined him later as they started their married life and their passion and dedication to the business grew as did their family. They soon realised that selling green coffee was not going to be enough to build a sustainable business. Tim then built a coffee roaster from scratch that is used to this day! They perfected their own roasting technique and so the Sabie Valley Coffee brand was born.
