Every step of the coffee journey is steeped in tradition and ritual, from the growing of the bean to the pouring of a cup. There is also a good dose of science in every drop. Join us for an exploration of coffee science taking in aroma, taste, health and history with Ian Edwards of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, scent technician Ericka Duffy and barista Catherine O’Shea of Artisan Roast.
