J K Rowling never
Why locals love it
This quirky, dark little cafe sources top quality specialty beans from Africa, Asia and the Americas. They possibly serve the best coffee in Scotland, and they proudly state that J K Rowling never wrote Harry Potter on the premises. Harry Potter fans might be put off by this fact, but definitely not the coffee loving locals.
Why you should visit it
Coffee enthusiasts, this is the place to be! The main attraction of this cozy cafe in Edinburgh's 'Pink Triangle' (gay district) is definitely the fresh-roast arabica. Baristas are friendly and keen to talk about the coffee they make. Expect laid-back atmosphere and great hospitality.
Artisan Roast now has an online shop so you can buy your favourite beans and brewing accessories.
