The mixture of coffee beans at the Republic of Cappucino (ROC) makes the blended coffee among the best in Suva, says the cafe’s assistant manager, Gibraan Jamnadas.

An aspiring and soft spoken lawyer, he ranks travel as one of his most loved pastime.

The 27 year old self-confessed introvert will often be spotted sitting alone in a corner of the cafe, working quietly on his phone.

“The cheesecake here is a best seller,” he said.

“We outsource to local brands for a made-in-Fiji line of pasteries.”

 

What Is The One Place In Fiji You Would Take Visitors To, And Why?
Denarau, if it is for commercial purposes.

The island resorts off Nadi, like Castaway, is another great destination.

The mud pools of Sabeto and trekking in the mainland are among other great choices to bring out the most in Fiji.

What Is Your Favourite Backyard Spot, And Why?
The peak of Nausori highlands.

Getting there offers an amazing experience, where the intake of the scenic view is breathtaking.

As long as you travel in a four wheel driver and not a Prius, you can reach the peak.

What Is One Destination In Fiji That Is On Your Bucket List?

Besides, my partner wants the same.

Besides The ROC, Where’s Your Favourite Place For A Coffee Or Pie?
If I may cheat, it’s Lazy Bean.

The cafe is good for a small bite.
