Coffee Horizons

It is a sad truth that many students drink coffee without realising how magical it can be. We are all guilty of instant coffee crimes but once you realise how much better it can be with just a few improvements, you will not want to go back.

We have previously shared with you a three step guide on how to brew your own coffee like a little artisan home barista, how to drink coffee with a conscience, and now we want to share with you why you actually should.

The coffee industry can be said to comprise of two distinct segments, namely that of speciality coffee and commodity coffee. If you think you don’t like coffee or you merely find it alright, it is most likely because you haven’t had the perfect cup yet.

Speciality coffee, such as the ones we enjoy at our Coffee Society sessions, stands out from common coffee beverages in that the coffee beans have been grown in ideal climates to go on to be roasted, stored and brewed to the highest standard possible. This in turn gives the coffee cup a full taste, very few to no defects and a distinctly unique taste that makes you want to trash the nearest place selling overpriced low-quality commodity coffee.

So what does all this mean? It means that there is a whole coffee world out there that you can easily become a part of. The coffee scene in Edinburgh is pretty amazing; not only do we have specialty coffee shops such as Cult Espresso, Artisan Roast and Brew Lab, but we, the Coffee Society, have also made it our mission to share our love for coffee and make high-quality coffee available to you all. Happy brewing!
