There’s no doubting that Edinburgh is big on coffee, specifically, good coffee. Machina Coffee are at the heart of this scene; they’re active wholesalers, coffee roasters, equipment suppliers and the owners of a popular independent shop on Broughton Street. The story of Machina is one of big ideas, quality produce and putting people first – synonymous with what makes local businesses so special.

There is no reason why the majority of these businesses should not only survive, but flourish.”
