We are proud to be an independently-owned Scottish family business with a rich heritage. Having supplied coffee throughout the 19th, 20th and now into the 21st Century, we have a huge legacy to draw on and are proud to still carry many recipes that go back over 100 years. Thomson’s Legacy collection is the embodiment of our history, pioneering flame roasted blends and single origin that steadfastly defy current trends. These coffees may be an acquired taste to some, but they have been enjoyed by generations of loyal customers and are the cornerstone of Thomson’s DNA.
We embrace our history but are not bound by it. Our aim is to ally the traditions and artisan roasting techniques of our past with the latest available technology. When we installed Scotland’s first Loring Smart Roaster, a New Standard - LAB was born. New Standard is a curated collection of speciality coffees produced exclusively on our Loring Smart Roaster, these are exceptional coffees of unrivalled quality and true provenance. Our aim is to preserve the natural flavours that our farmers have worked hard to nurture while growing and processing the beans and to avoid masking them with generic roasted flavours.
Beyond New Standard is our Lab range, a testbed, a place for us to uncover the tastes of tomorrow - here we focus on exceptionally rare and unique coffees, micro-lots and experimental roasts.
