Humans of coffee: Jono Le Feuvre

  Who is Jono Le Feuvre? Damn it. I was going to do my best not to be ethereal and pretentious. But failure in that regard looms large before me (see the pretension has started already). The concept of Jono Le Feuvre evolves as does his context. Right now I am an African, white, privileged, previously- and currently-advantaged, heterosexual married, practising-Christian father of three children. I graduated with a degree in journalism and now I import and roast coffee for a living. I am passionate about living an active lifestyle and staying in shape, but the reality is that I achieve neither of those ideals. I am exhilarated by rigorous debate on topics that affect how humans interact with one another (social justice, religion, and correct Aeropress etiquette) but I am also exhilarated by life’s most frivolous and superficial of endeavors (coffee, wine, cuisine).

When this couldn’t be furthest from the truth. I have a passion for learning new things, and I am constantly looking to understand stuff outside of my field. I love flavours and the exploration of flavours. Understanding what makes flavours and flavour combinations tick. I have 70 Dives to my name an advance Free-diving license. A pilots license.

As a child we would travel to Mauritius a lot. Went to the US twice, including Disney world and New York. As a young aspiring Pilot and lover of Top Gun, I was super fortunate enough to have been to Pensacola and got to see the Blue Angels all lined up and ready to go. But probably the …
