We set up back in 2011 at the top of Glenlyon, one of the most beautiful glens in the Scottish Highlands. After several winters spent digging lorry deliveries out of snowdrifts on our single track road we moved the roastery lock, stock and barrel to Aberfeldy, a cool little town on the banks of the River Tay. Here we roast up some of the world’s finest beans on our much loved Probat with a staff of five and a gang of lovely dogs. When we’re not roasting, cupping or brewing you’ll most likely find us out in the hills and on the rivers of our beautiful Highland home.
Our speciality arabica beans are typically shade grown at between 1400-2000m above sea level and hand-picked when ripe. We buy seasonally and a number of our coffees are also organically certified.
We pay substantially over fair trade prices for our speciality beans and we love the fact that we can trace our coffee all the way back to the individual farmer who grew it. We travel to origin as much as possible to build long lasting relationships with our producers (check out our journal to follow these trips).
We’re proud to deliver coffee to our local wholesale customers in reusable tin pails in our electric Nissan Leaf. We recycle our coffee chaff to use as bedding for local free-range chickens and send any long dated coffee to Fareshare, for distribution to homeless centres across Scotland.
