Our smooth, full bodied Coffee Porter is BACK on our shelves. Made with the coffee from our fantastic local roastery – Speyside Coffee Roasting Co. who like all small businesses have had to work hard to adapt especially in the last year.
Based just a little way down the coast in the village of Garmouth, Speyside Coffee Roasting Co is run by the very passionate duo, Grant and Jody. Inspired from their experiences in New Zealand, they set up the roastery back in 2017 with a commitment to only use single origin beans as they are based in the heart of single malt whisky country.
They chose Brazilian beans as their staple due to the unique growing conditions that give the coffee a smooth berry, chocolate and caramel profile.
Their decaf beans are from Guatemala which give different flavour – a greater creaminess but still with a good chocolate finish.
Like all small independent businesses, Grant and Jody are always look at how to respond to their customers and so their big plan for 2020 was to move to a new café premises in Elgin. Despite COVID-19, they still managed to open in August 2020 and initial trading proved it was the right decision.
Sadly, with lockdown rules, the Elgin café is currently closed but like us here at Windswept, they have adapted. Their Roastery at Garmouth is open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 10am to 1pm for take away coffees and bags of freshly roasted coffee to brew at home. They also have an online shop where you can buy their coffee too.
