According to property experts Savills, the number of chain coffee shops in Scotland is up 45 % over two years. The region also has a vibrant indy coffee scene and expectations around quality are rising with consumers becoming more demanding and increasingly knowledgeable.
So perfect timing for Miko to launch Hand Roasted in Scotland, the first range of artisan speciality blends to be produced in house at the company’s new purpose built roastery in East Kilbride.
According to Jenna Horsnell at Miko, “Hand Roasted in Scotland meets the demand for a premium coffee offer with local provenance which has great appeal to discerning Scottish consumers.”
Two individual hand roasted blends are on offer to foodservice and retail customers, both sourced from South American farms and equally good taken black or with milk based drinks such as flat whites and cappuccinos.
The existing Miko range also includes Hand Roasted in Cornwall – are we seeing a theme developing here?
