Ion Magazine - Spotlight On Luckie Beans Edinburgh's ION Magazine wrote some lovely things about us in their monthly lifestyle magazine: "It takes a very exciting kind of coffee to boast features in Vogue and GQ but Berwick-upon-Tweed based Luckie Beans offers just that. Luxury is engrained in everything from the beans themselves to the packing but foremostly, in the flavour. Their range of roasts include blends and single source options; both are as gourmet as you’ll find anywhere and are, in some cases, rare. For something extra special, try their Cerro Azul: Geisha made with beans grown by Granja La Esperanza in Colombia. The Geisha plants receive uninterrupted sunrises and sunsets with the cherries reaching perfect sugar levels due to the proximity to the Equator, volcanic fertile soils, and sufficient rain – exquisite. Max out the experience with their range of brewing equipment."

Coffee Festivals, Vogue, GQ & Bond

Coffee Festivals

October was very much the month for coffee festivals in Scotland.  Luckie Beans exhibited at both the Edinburgh & Glasgow coffee festivals.  Taking along our Hario Syphons and Beam Heaters, we attracted quite a crowd.  All of our coffees were available by the cup.  It was so nice to meet so many people who liked the Luckie Beans brand, but more importantly loved the coffee!

The Very First UK Coffee Roasting Championship

We were very fortunate to be involved in the first ever UK Coffee Roasting Championship.  Held over a 3 day period, starting in Edinburgh and finishing in Glasgow, it was a memorable experience.  The only Scot in the competition, it's safe to say Jamie is number one in Scotland :)

Back in Vogue with a Bond Girl

We were back in Vogue again, but this time with a Bond Girl!  Showing off our Love Lane House Blend, and Malawi AAA with the V60 ceramic dripper and pot set.   

First time in GQ

GQ have been showcasing Luckie Beans!  We're looking forward to viewing the new Bond film Spectre.  What about you?  

Edinburgh Coffee Festival, Vogue, and raising money for Prostate Cancer

The Distinguished Gentleman's Bike Ride

Luckie Beans Featured in Vogue Magazine

We were over the moon to see Luckie Beans featured within 'Vogue's Most Wanted' during the October edition.  On show are our Cerro Azul, Rwanda Impala, and Kenya New Irera Peaberry.  Look out for us in next months Vogue and GQ magazines too.
