The story so far
“Morning dog” is what owner Alan Watson would say every morning to his dog Pepe who was the inspiration behind the coffee brand.
Alan noticed Pepe’s energy and depth of character were similar to what he looked for in a good coffee and following the purchase of a small roaster, Morningdog Coffee was born.
The Aboyne-based roaster curates an extensive range of small batch and single origin coffee takes customers on a journey of coffee discovery. Roasting the beans in small batches means that coffee lovers are promised the freshest of coffee roast with distinct flavour.
Alan works closely with a hand-picked selection of UK coffee importers to ethically source the best beans from small farmers. You’re not only supporting a local Scottish coffee producer but a small farming business on the other side of the world too. Call that a two-pronged attack.
