Freemans Coffee should be your first port of call if and when you go to Edinburgh.
Tom and Nicole Climpson had the privilege of spending some time there, learning a lot about the burgeoning coffee scene. David Freeman of Freemans Coffee is ex army but decided to pursue his passion for coffee, opening up Freemans Coffee and pop-up Lock up Coffee (featuring a different espresso every week). David just competed in the Young British Foodie Award for Coffee with a Cascara brew. You can try it for yourself at Freemans Coffee.
“We are coffee geeks...But we are the friendly kind”
Edinburgh has a lot of great coffee now, according to Dave the coffee scene went from zero to hero in the space of a year - as more people seek out great coffee.
To keep up with the play, a group of coffee lovers started the Edinburgh Coffee Jam which takes place every month. It is not about being exclusive, it is a chance to ‘chat nonsense about coffee’ and maybe learn something.
We have decided the Edinburgh scene is one to watch and hopefully frequent!
