Watch: Climbing Kilimanjaro

Wednesday, 22 August, 2018

Michael Macaskill and Hugh Pines from Terbodore Coffee Roaster’s Franschhoek roastery recently climbed up Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, the highest mountain in Africa. Their aim was to attempt to make an espresso on the summit with a modified La Pavoni lever machine and publicise Terbodore’s young-at-heart, adventurous offshoot, called Lazy Bones.

They documented their journey to the summit with an entertaining, three-part video series. See what happened in the videos below.

Some Kilimanjaro stats:

- Highest free-standing mountain in the world

- Highest mountain in Africa

- The summit Uhuru Peak is 5,895m above sea level

- The mountain is a dormant volcano which is comprised of three volcanic cones, Shira, Kibo (on which Uhuru summit stands) and Mawenzi
