Ciro Uncupped

wrtr1-1

A business run with passion, dedication and energetic enthusiasm

Our illustrious origin dates back to over 60 years ago when TW Becketts (1951), who owned the Five Roses brand, identified an opportunity to develop a tea and coffee offering, focused on the exclusive needs of the hospitality market.

A division called The Coffee Importers and Roasters Organisation (CIRO) was created with a clear vision and purpose to:

  • Import the finest coffee beans from all over the world;
  • Develop and establish blend profiles that meet local tastes, with the Ciro brand representing flagship blends;
  • Create the best local roasting facility, ensuring maximum freshness and best in-cup quality.

As a result of accomplishing our initial goals over the years, our vision has evolved for the better. We have become the leading Away From Home beverage supplier with strong credentials and expertise in beverage solutions for all occasions.

As the largest manufacturer of pure coffee in South Africa, with production in excess of 2 700 tons of roasted coffee beans per annum, it is easy to understand why Ciro is a noteworthy frontrunner within the coffee service industry.

A trusted brand by both consumers and the industry, we are renowned for our consistent quality, innovative product formats and value offering – which helps our family of partners and customers minimise costs and focus on their core business.

Production Process

Under the guidance of incredibly skilled and meticulous Coffee Masters, Ciro follows several processes to ensure that premium coffee is the order of the day. We strongly believe that quality is central in ensuring that the final cup produced is of a superior standard, therefore coffee sampling forms a crucial part of our production process – proof that there’s a stringent science behind every great cup of coffee we produce.
