Welcome to The Clay Table Podcast


We talk about all things coffee, including opening our very first specialty coffee bar and roastery in Cape Town, South Africa; coffee farmers in Africa; coffee trading practices; communities impacted by coffee farming; world championships; economics of coffee; coffee consumption; and a whole lot in-between.

Your hosts - Ernest and Nicette,

Co-founders and Co-Owners of Clay Pigeon Trading and Swart Coffee Company.

This podcast is an expression session, so nothing is scripted. The conversation is driven by our passion to create a more sustainable, responsible and ethical way to trade and consume coffee. Join the conversation, and help us spread the word for transparent coffee.


Clay Pigeon Trading™ is a consciously curated™ specialty coffee roastery and coffee bar located in Cape Town, South Africa. We procure and roast only Specialty Q/Grade coffee from the African continent. Our mission extends beyond quality coffee - we have a pro-Africa agenda, trading with African coffee farmers exclusively and directly. Not only does this help the farmer to profit more, but also ensures 100% transparency from farmer to cup - a rarity in today’s coffee industry.
