Our passion is coffee
Labit established Fleet Coffee Company in January 2015 as part of its strategic goal to create new small businesses. The name FLEET COFFEE COMPANY is derived from our Lieutenant Commander Barista, Cheslin Grobbler. He learned the barista trade whilst training in the navy. At the time, he was still in high school and very rebellious in nature. It was decided that the navy would be a great platform to address this and so started the journey of Fleet Coffee Company.
More About Us
Years later, after finishing his diploma in Theology and also playing rugby semi-professionally for Boland, Cheslin started to work, as a barista, in a local coffee shop in Wellington. It was here where he was introduced to Labit.
Now established, FLEET seeks to give similar opportunities to the youth and show them alternatives to crime related activities in our communities.
