Glen Lyon Roasters Tasting

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.
