Artisan Coffee Roasters

Passion with Pride

In every bean we produce


It all startS WITH…

Our dedicated team of buyers work year round to source the highest quality green coffee beans from plantations around the world. Our master roaster then roast  these by hand, and by eye, in small batches most days in our 50 year old Probat roaster. (No matter how modern the company, Probat machines remain favoured the world over by artisan coffee roasters.) Our vintage roaster is located in our modern, purpose built premises, allowing us - almost uniquely - to blend and pack our coffees within an hour of roasting them. By carrying out each and every stage of production in house we can guarantee the freshness of all our coffees, ensuring you experience the subtle characteristics and delicate notes our master roasters draw out of the green, unroasted beans.

Hand Crafted Teas

Perfectly suited to Scottish waters


Whether our experienced tea buyers…

are a sourcing single origin Indian Darjeeling or a Chinese Lapsang Souchong, right through to our signature classics such as Scottish Breakfast tea - or our unique and famous Heather or Whisky flavoured teas - our master tea blenders sample and blend to perfection all of our teas, in small batches, here in our modern facilities. While doing so we ensure we extend the same care and passion our founder, Andrew Melrose, did when he first started importing fresh tea into Edinburgh over 200 years ago.
