Artisan Roasted Coffee, Edinburgh

Artisan Roasted Coffee, EdinburghArtisan Roast coffee roasters, from Scotland, offer quality coffee, high-end equipment, and top coaching to amateur and professional clients.


A few years ago, my friend, Mario Zanetti, who is a veterinarian, went to Scotland to study and improve his knowledge on lambs.

Mario was also the younger son of a well-known coffee-trader in our region here in Brazil. After three months, he was back and told me that he had had coffee at this fantastic place called Artisan Roast.

Recently and coincidentally, researching about coffee roasters in the United Kingdom, I decided to write a post about them. Not knowing Scotland, I asked Mario to supply me with some detail about the company and if he thought I could vouch for them.

He had some excellent information about those guys and told me Artisan Roast is a serious business.

After double checking with two other sources from the UK, I decided to use their testimonies associated with data from the official website to write this article.

Brazilian Coffee options


Irmãs Pereira DP
Brazil/double pass

A 100% pure Arabica origin coffee from the Mantiqueira Hills.

As usual, it ‘s hard to find blends that do not use Brazilian coffee.

Janzoon Blend

This coffee is composed of exquisite high altitude Arabica beans from Sumatra and Brazil.


Trigonometry Blend

This two Ethiopians and one Brazilian coffee match beautifully in this blend to give a bold and transparent brew that works well for espresso as it does for a drip brew.


Decaf – Artisan Roast

The decaf we roast is an exceptional selection of the finest Southern Brazilian Arabicas. Roasted a little fuller to a medium dark roast brings out a rich nuttiness and a sweet molasses-like flavor that develops during the decaffeination process.
