The Bean Shop was established in 2003 by husband and wife duo, John and Lorna Bruce, with the vision of delivering the finest coffee roasted in Scotland to the good people of Perth and the UK. We started roasting coffee in the basement of our George Street shop on our trusty 5Kg Probat roaster. Sixteen years on it is still going strong...
We started selling coffee online in 2004 and have continued to develop blends and refine our coffee list to ensure that we always have a selection of the finest speciality coffee beans available.
Working closely with skilled import partners, we manage consistent quality through tasting and constant evaluation of our coffees, selecting only the finest quality beans that will ensure the best flavour in the cup.
Roasting by hand gives our coffee the attention to detail and the distinctive flavour that it deserves. We roast in small batches, daily so that the coffee's individual characteristics can shine through. By tasting and sharing our roasting techniques we can offer a consistency and depth of flavour unique to The Bean Shop.
Freshness is the key for great coffee so we roast to order and don't leave coffee sitting around to lose its intrinsic flavour. We only roast what we need and bag the coffee into one way valve bags to preserve the delicate aromas and flavours.
