The different types of skills training


Johann Potgieter or better known as "Pottie" by the mountain biking community has always had a deep passion for coffee and community.

The post-ride coffee and socialisation with fellow bikers were always more important to this coffee connoisseur than the actual bike ride itself.

Pottie ventured to build a business as well as a community that combines both of his two biggest passions in life and so Pottie’s Coffee was born.

Pottie’s Coffee aims to create an inviting and friendly environment where biking enthusiasts can enjoy a high-quality coffee while having post-ride conversations/discussions.
