For over 150 years, the name Brodies has been synonymous with the finest teas and coffees from around the world. Brodies is an artisan coffee roaster based in Edinburgh supplying leading coffee shops, hotels and Michelin Star restaurants across the UK. Our highly skilled roasters are passionate about the coffee they produce. Roasted by hand they use their senses and experience to ensure the coffee is perfectly roasted and the flavour profile is fully developed. Over many years we have developed trusted relationships with farmers and co-operatives around the world and were early adopters of Fairtrade, one of the most widely recognised and trusted certification marks in the UK.
Brodies have been importing and blending tea since the time of the great tea clippers which docked at the bustling Port of Leith. Our tea is still sourced from the established tea growing countries of India, Africa, Sri Lanka and China and we continue in that spirit of exploration by also working with emerging tea-growing countries such as Indonesia, Vietnam and Zimbabwe. Another testament to our commitment to quality is our membership of the prestigious Tea Council since 1979, now known as the UK Tea and Infusion Association and with whom the Tea Grading System was founded, here in the UK.
We have a comprehensive barista training programme, free to all our partners. We will introduce your team from basic principles to advanced latte art session either at our competence centre or alternative on site and all our Area Sales Managers are trained to SCA standard.
