New venture for baristas

Couple causing a stir with Cobolt Coffee box

Harriet and AdamThe latest Edinburgh coffee venture has been launched by Harriet Murden and her partner Adam Glen who have taken over and converted a redundant police box in Marchmont Crescent.

Cobolt Coffee, a play on the colour cobalt, opened for business on Wednesday and the two experienced baristas are hoping to build a local clientele of customers in the area just off the Meadows.

The couple met while working at Beanscene in Kilmacolm, Renfrewshire, and when they moved to Edinburgh Harriet got a job with Costa at the airport while Adam worked at Coffee Angel in Canonmills.

They have researched the sector and ordered products based on the knowledge they have built. They hope the box will be a platform to bigger things in the not too distant future.

The couple aim to provide more than a routine cuppa by sourcing some speciality products to appeal to as wide a range of tastes as possible.

“Our tea will be from the lovely PekoeTea and our hot chocolate is coming from the delicious The Chocolate Tree. We will stock goats, almond, lactose free and soya milks,” said Harriet, who is the daughter of Daily Business Editor Terry Murden.
