The Orkney Roastery - set up in March 2017 by Sara Tait and Euan Smith - produces small batches of its own Aria brand coffees at its micro-roastery in Kirkwall for supply online and to shops, cafés, restaurants and hotels.

The roastery aims to continue the quest to release the excellent natural flavour of every coffee bean we roast. Aria’s journey will explore and source the highest quality beans from around the world.

Our promise is to keep things small and hands-on roasting 8- 10kg batches to ensure that our all our customers continually experience the fabulous fresh roast taste.

Roast profiles for new products are developed then tweaked to achieve the desired taste. Paying great attention to detail at every stage of the roasting process gets the most from every bean we roast and will ensure that our customers have the best and freshest possible taste experience in their daily coffee ‘fix’.
