  1. Hello folks I've decided to sell my specialty coffee business in Glasgow, is it okay to put info on coffee forums and which thread is best to put it in? Steph
  2. Any recommendations/insight into either of these, please? The Edinburgh one has 26 Exhibitors and the Glasgow one has 55 Exhibitors - not all the ones that are going to be in Edin are going to be in Glasg. Anyone experienced either/both? I'm inclined towards Glasgow, purely because of '55' as opposed to '26'. I can't be bothered travelling past the border, well because I live way up in Aberdeen so it's just too much hassle. And I only want to go to one so I don't want to pick the wrong one. Thanks guys.

  5. Hello all, Just posting to say hello. As my username suggests - I am Al from Glasgow. I have always enjoyed coffee, but with the growth in the coffee scene in Glasgow over recent years my interest and enjoyment has increased significantly. At the moment I only brew with Aeropress and V60 at home but I am looking at branching out into Espresso territory now so am looking for tips and support! Cheers, Al
  6. https://www.gumtree.com/p/other-kitchen-appliances/la-spaziale-s5-2-group-coffee-machine-and-mini-mazzer-grinder/1150308551 Presuming you could talk him down to £1000 (he says reasonable offers would be considered) and you could shift the grinder on eBay for a decent sum you are potentially looking at about £800 for this La Spaz S5 2 Group. Maybe even less. Seems very reasonable.
  7. Hi, I might have 2 tickets for the above sold out concert. They do not belong to me but my brother, and it looks like he might not be able to go, as work are sending him abroad. This will be guaranteed one way or the other within a week. The tickets are in block 230 which are centre stage. They cost £75 each plus a £9 each booking fee. He will be looking for a profit on this. If anyone is seriously interested please say so here, and as soon as I can confirm the situation I will post back. because these are not for sale, registering interest is not committing either way!
  8. Just saying hello as a newbie from "sunny" Glasgow. Taking my first tentative steps on the road to real coffee with an aeropress. Now hoping to grind at home. I will probably start with a hand grinder (but sorely tempted by an electric grinder in the for sale section which might be overkill. Impressed by the number of decent coffee place that have now sprung up in Glasgow. Haven't bitten the bullet yet and bought any of their freshly roasted beans yet. Any recommendations welcome.
  9. Spotted this: https://www.gumtree.com/p/coffee-machines/mazzer-super-jolly-auto-coffee-grinder/1154726118 Could a mod bump this into the eBay/Gumtree forum? I don't have 20 posts yet.
  10. I'm begining to think it's time to get some more formal barista training as opposed to reading about things and trying to guess if it seems right after. I'm look for training in Scotland prefrably the edinburgh area but i'm happy enough to travel could possibly be training for two as my dad seems fairly intrested in learning too any recommendations? I'm also curious as to what you all think the best way's are to try a wide array of coffees are? as im starting to think about changing my current coffee for something better and freshly roasted!
  11. My name is James and I am 15 years old. I live with my parents in Inverness and am completely mad about coffee!!! I may be too young to have an 'addiction' to coffee in some people's eyes, but I enjoy it and was eased into it by my father who is also an avid coffee drinker so I feel that it is ok. I (or rather my parents - but I use them the most!) have a cafetiere/french press, a drip brewer, a bialetti stove top espresso maker and an electric pressure espresso maker. That may or may not seem a lot but I enjoy the different flavors that each one gives! We mainly use pre-ground fresh coffee from different places but I would love to start trying lots of different beans - just for the fun of it really!!! Away from coffee, I am an avid astronomer and amateur photographer and of course the coffee helps when you are standing around at 1am in the winter with temperatures reaching -10 deg. c ; yes astronomy in the highlands is cold!!! Anyway, that is a bit about me and I look forward to talking coffee with all you guys (and girls!!) Regards James
  12. Hi all, I am currently writing a coffee blog and am looking for recommendations of where to go in glasgow. Have been a few place already if you want to check out my reviews: https://thegoodthebadandthelatte.blogspot.com/ Hope you enjoy x
  13. Hello My name is Grant. I have recently opened a coffee house just south of Glasgow in Scotland and wanted to let you know all about it! I have a brand new VERONA RS 3 GROUP HEAD machine from Sanremo! I have had machines before, gaggia, exobar and one hideous machine that was unbranded and i can honestly say that this is BY FAR the best machine i have ever worked on. If you are looking at opening a coffee house or getting a new machine you HAVE to look at these machines! We have only been open for just over 6 months, so time will tell about the longitude of this machine but it is producing perfectly consistant espressos with the thickest creme ive seen in Scotland! Obv thats not just down to the machine and depends on what coffee you use in your grinder. I cant sing it praises enough - i love it! It makes my business stand out - as there arent alot of these machines around and makes my coffee i serve considerably better than any of my competition! Please feel free to pop in and see this beauty for yourself. Thanks Grant QUAY WEST
  14. Dropped in to try out their Dear Green beans and found a lovely welcoming cafe with friendly staff. Thoroughly enjoyed our Long Blacks and will be back again to try the other beans they have.

    Has anyone heard of these beans? A recent article sited a shop in Byres Road Glasgow as having the strongest coffee around. so eventually I managed to get in and i treated myself to an americano. This was about 30-40 after a double expresso from artisan on Gibson street. Anyway shortly after I was gibbering like and idiot with my 3 year old. It's strong stuff. The shop sells a kilo for £25 but I wondered if I can get it online cheaper. I googled it and nothing came up. any ideas? Cheers.

  18. So have booked the flights to 'sunny' Glasgow for Christmas and so now looking for a few recommendations for coffee and, ideally, food too. Before I book hotel am keep to ID a nice coffee place I can use as my local for breakfast and then see what the nearby hotel options are. Any ideas welcome.
  19. Avenue G have started roasting their own beans at their new(ish) location on Great Western Road. They mentioned on Facebook they were having a cupping session this morning so I stuck my name down, braved the snow and headed along. The session was run by Katelyn and Todd - both really friendly and enthusiastic. They started with an explanation of how they select their greens which led us in to cupping. There were five of us in the group and none of us had cupped before so the importance of slurping was stressed at this point and everyone encourage to be as noisy as possible. We cupped three coffees - a Columbian, a Kenyan Thiriku and a Rocky Mountain Yirgacheffe. We were told to smell the coffees after the water was poured in to see how they developed but everyone was still a bit tentative at this point so didn't get really go for it. I only smelled the Columbian and it smelt pretty much how you'd expect a Columbian to smell. Then we got on the to slurping - I had the Columbian first and it was good, classic South American, chocolate, gentle orange/citrus acidity but not the sort of thing i'd be scrambling for. Tried the Yirga next and it was outstanding - blueberries, someone said brambles, lemon, fruity, almost bergamot/floral vibes - amazing. Knockout coffee. Last was the Kenyan, which was great too, fruity but with a bit more mouthfeel although it was totally overshadowed by the Yirga. Katelyn and Todd said they would have cupped the Columbian first, then the Kenyan and the Yirga last for that reason which was interesting. After we had a general chat about things like coffee harvests/seasons, forecasting what you'll need/want, how coffee is graded, roasting scales, how they aim to roast (the Has Bean way of doing one roast which represents the beans as well as possible rather than a specific filter/espresso roast), Scandinavian roasts, Tim Wendleboe, brightness fatigue, a bit of talk about water/minerals etc. For a free session it was brilliant. I'd tried cupping at home before but never got anything like that value out of it - to get the clarity of flavour and see what the bean is capable of was a revelation. Wanted a bag of the Yirga but they sold out of it while the cupping was running so had to make do with the Kenyan. Smells amazing though. They're planning to do these sessions once a month so if you're in the area i'd recommend checking one out. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Avenue-G-Caf%C3%A9-Glasgow/223293021018108 http://www.avenuecoffee.co.uk/

  25. Popped in for a visit here just before they closed and ordered an Aeropress coffee using one of their wide selection of roasted in-house single origin beans. Despite an early mishap with the plunger tipping its contents over the counter, the friendly barista patiently re-made it and very tasty it was too. They also offer V60 and siphon coffee to share with a friend and the usual choice of espresso based drinks made on their lovely Faema E61 pictured below. Bought some beans to take home which are very tasty and would have also bought some tea too (as they have a huge selection of those too to buy by weight) had I not just stocked up. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area either for a coffee or some beans / tea leaves and you can grab a seat next to their old roaster too!
