About Me

Welcome to Run On Coffee, a Lifestyle blog that I started in August 2013 on the Blogger platform and which I moved to this beautiful new website in February 2018.


Hi I’m Nicola, a mom of 2 kids and 2 pet kids and married to a wonderful supportive man for 25 years and counting. We live in Kloof which is outside the city of Durban in South Africa. I love doing crafts and my all time favourite craft is anything to do with pretty paper. I also love stationery, especially notebooks and I have quite a collection. I find it very hard to use a pretty notebook.


There are many fabulous coffee shops and other places to visit in Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa and I love to write about what I have seen and experienced. I love to travel and it is always a treat for me to be able to go on a trip. South Africa is a beautiful country and I am always in awe when I see our majestic Drakensberg mountains.


I’m a proper coffee person – no instant coffee trash! We buy South African roasted coffee and grind the beans at home so that we can drink a fresh cup. We make our coffee using a BODUM French press and also using an AeroPress. When I’m at a coffee shop either chatting with friends or people watching I love to enjoy a cappuccino.


So join me in my adventures while I
