Starbucks coffee will be served in South Africa in time for the World Cup, it was announced yesterday.

The brew would be available in select Southern Sun Hotels and Tsogo Sun Casinos in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban, Tsogo Sun Gaming said.

"This move into South Africa is another sign of Starbucks's commitment to doing business in Africa," the company said.

Southern Sun managing director Graham Wood said that his company was "excited" about the association.

"We look forward to being able to offer our guests the large variety of coffee options that will be available to them in select hotels," Wood said. Starbucks would be available at Johannesburg's SunSquare Montecasino Hotel and InterContinental Johannesburg Sandton Towers, Southern Sun Cullinan Hotel in Cape Town and Southern Sun Elangeni Hotel in Durban.
