Kobus Wiese was born on May 16th 1964 in Paarl, matriculating at Paarl Gimnasium.

He went on to study further at Paarl Onderwys, and obtained his teaching diploma from Goudstad. 

He has played rugby for Boland, Western Transvaal and Transvaal (now Gauteng), touring as a Springbok to Australia in 1993, New Zealand, Wales, Scotland and Ireland in 1994, Italy and England in 1995 and Argentina, France and Wales in 1996.

He has 127 caps to his credit, including 19 tests.  He was, of course, one of the World Cup Winning Squad in 1995, becoming a national hero overnight.

He was appointed to the Gauteng Lions’ captaincy from Francois Pienaar.

Although a fearsome presence on the field, Kobus is a restaurateur and coffee shop owner whose greatest passions are coffee (not surprisingly) and red wine.

Kobus is also a sought-after speaker – using his experiences both on the rugby field as well as in his own extremely successful business – to demonstrate how motivation and team spirit are essential to any kind of success.

He is also a highly recommended bilingual Master of Ceremonies.
In 1996 Kobus established Wiesenhof Coffees. While operating his first Coffee Shop in the East Rand Mall, previously part of another Franchise Group, he found that he received no support from the Franchiser.

This resulted in Kobus starting to import his own coffee beans to support his business. And this led to the creation of Wiesenhof Coffees, which now has 20 stores in operation.

In between his hectic schedule, Kobus is also a Sports Presenter on M Net, which he terms to be more of a hobby. Kobus Wiese is a sought after Motivational Speaker and Master of Ceremonies and is often invited to appear at numerous corporate functions and events.

In the world of business, Kobus Wiese is a highly regarded coffee ‘baron, having pioneered the Wiesenhof chain of coffee shops.

On the rugby field, he has left many an opposition player quaking in his boots. But in reality, I am assured that off, the field, he is a gentle giant!
