Free coffee tasting? You had me at free coffee. Even better when it’s Glen Lyon Roasters, operating out of Aberfeldy in the Scottish Highlands. After meeting co-owner Jamie Grant a few years back when he came to speak at the St Andrews Photographic Society, wearing his photographer hat, I’ve regularly ordered their beans — happy customer. Which is even easier now that they’re carried in town, at great cafés such as Zest on South Street.
Not coincidentally, Zest was the location of a presentation last week conducted by Jamie, including a rundown on where the company procures its beans, as well as a tasting of a few of its offerings, including a decaf option.
Heresy, I know.
