Chocolate, Caramel and Dried Fruits
So you know when your friend who worked as a barista in a specialty coffee shop a few years back told you that blends were rubbish? Well they lied and what they really meant was, it it's their guilty pleasure.
You see, blends can be really, really good. The beauty is the consistency of a set profile and for this we've found one packed full of Chocolate & Caramel with big body and sweetness. The coffees that make up this profile - 'the blend' - will change and bring with them different nuance, but they'll still present these qualities that we love.
Our current blend comprises a Natural Brazil 'Mantiqueira' and Washed Guatemalan 'Esmeralda'. This iteration is a fantastic option with milk thanks to its big body, and with notes like Milk Chocolate and Peanut Butter, and we think you'll love it especially as an espresso.

Our story started in 2013 when a conversation in the Cairngorm National Park led to the dream of starting a quality focussed coffee shop in Scotland’s capital city.
An ensuing visit to Edinburgh to visit an empty sandwich shop on Frederick St paved the future for Cairngorm Coffee as we know it now.
Four years later we invested in our 12-kilo Probat roaster and started a long journey of trial and error to refine not just our roasting approach, but the necessary skills to source and assess the quality of the coffee we would roast.
Every day has been a learning day, and a fun one at that!
