A passion for coffee and music

COFFEE and music house chain Beanscene has opened its second Beanscene Espresso in Edinburgh. The new outlet opened in South Gyle Business Park at the end of April brings the number of Beanscene stores across Scotland to 14. Additionally the company has launched a franchise strategy with the aim to open up to 45 outlets throughout Scotland within the next three years.

'South Gyle is exactly the kind of location we had in mind when we conceived the Beanscene Espresso offering,' says Gordon Richardson founder of Beanscene. 'Whereas Beanscene offers somewhere for customers to sit back and soak up some sounds while chilling out over an espresso and a bite to eat in their own backyard, Beanscene Espresso provides metropolitan customers on-the-go with an equivalent range of lattes, cappuccinos, espressos and soft drinks as well as a mouth-watering selection of freshly made sandwiches, baguettes, muffins and pastries.

'What sets Beanscene apart from other coffee houses and music retailers is that we bring our passion for music and our constant pursuit of the ultimate caffeine kick together at each and every store. That same ethos will apply equally to the Beanscene Espresso shops.'
