Glen Lyon Coffee are speciality coffee roasters based in the Scottish Highlands. We set up in 2011 at the top of Glenlyon, one of the most beautiful glens in Scotland. After several winters spent digging lorry deliveries out of snowdrifts on our single track road we moved the roastery lock, stock and barrel to Aberfeldy on the banks of the River Tay. Here our dynamic team of six source, roast and cup delicious coffees from around the world. Working closely with our producers at origin our focus is on quality, traceability and long-term relationships.
Glen Lyon Coffee is dedicated to sourcing the finest speciality beans from around the world. To us this means that all of the coffees we buy are seasonal, traceable and score a minimum of 80 out of 100 on an international scale for their flavours. Our speciality arabica beans are typically shade grown at between 1400-2000m above sea level and hand-picked when ripe. A number of our coffees are also organically grown.
We work closely with farmers and co-operatives in more than 12 countries around the world. All of our speciality coffees are 100% traceable and ethically sourced. We build direct, long term relationships with producers and trading partners throughout the supply train and pay the coffee farmers we work with significantly above Fairtrade prices.
We roast in small batches and check every batch for quality and consistency before sending it out. Final decisions on all the coffees we source and roast are made by our own in-house sensory professional and Q Grader.
