How it Works: 



  1. Order a Bag of Coffee for Collection: Swing by and pick up a bag of our finest coffee beans, carefully selected for your enjoyment.
  2. Take Home a Tree Sapling: With each order that includes a bag of coffee, receive a small Outeniqua Yellowwood tree Sapling—a living reminder of your commitment to sustainability.
  3. If You Order for Delivery: The tree will display in your cart, but it will not be delivered. Saplings does not love being shipped, but if you are planning to swing by Pretoria, or have someone living close by, and really really want one, let us know in your order notes and we will be more than happy to keep one aside for you.  

Why the Outeniqua Yellowwood Tree?


The Outeniqua Yellowwood (Afrocarpus falcatus) symbolizes resilience and adaptability. Native to South Africa and one of our protected tree species. This tree is a testament to our dedication to local biodiversity, wildlife habitat creation, and climate change mitigation. 

Our Tree Project is more than a giveaway; it’s an opportunity to make a positive impact. Plant your tree Sapling in your garden, or any suitable space, and let it serve as a living reminder, motivating you to stay committed to your goals for 2024. Just like the tree, growth comes with time and dedication. 🌿☕🌎 #GrowWithGegrond
