Dear Green Coffee Roasters are based in Glasgow’s East End. In this two-hour tour learn about the origins of coffee and hear Norry from Lost Glasgow spill the beans about the history of Glasgow’s coffee houses.
Established in 2011, Dear Green Coffee Roasters are a coffee roaster and supplier of exclusively 'speciality' grade coffee beans. Taking its name from its home city of Glasgow, the ‘Dear Green Place,’ the roastery is just around the corner from the Barrowlands in the Glasgow Collective.
The tour will give you an insight into the sourcing, roasting and ethics of coffee – as well as the chance to taste different origins.
Norry Wilson from Lost Glasgow will be speaking about the history of Glasgow coffee houses and the role the exotic beverage went on to play a role in the city’s mercantile, commercial and social life. Norry will also be talking about the history of the nearby buildings in the East End.
This tour is essential for any coffee lover.
