Glasgow: The coffee capital of Scotland
And we can't lie, the team at GRA are massive coffee lovers and Gordon Street Coffee in Central Station is our go to. Not only is it mid commute, they make amazing coffee, catering for all preferences including one the teams love of oat milk.
Gordon Street Coffee, which undertook its inaugural roast in May 2014, was the first shop in the city centre to roast its own coffee so it’s no wonder that research by Glasgow University has discovered that the city likes its coffee stronger than Italy and Spain.
DR Wakefield Ltd, a major supplier of raw coffee beans to artisan roasters such as Gordon Street Coffee, reports a third increase in the sale of beans to small batch roasters across Scotland since 2010.
From the outset, Gordon St Coffee was determined to offer the city’s commuters the best possible cup of coffee which is why they roast and blend their own coffee on site every day, under the watchful eye of the master roaster. Customers can see the team at work upstairs in the roastery where they are more than happy to answer any questions about the process and see our coffee roaster nicknamed ‘Deidre’ in action. Their master roaster uses the traditional methods of sight and sound to produce the perfect coffee every time.
Gordon St Coffee blends are available to order on-line and is delivered direct to your door, UK wide.
