|Coolness: Aeropress Championships poster collection meets reclaimed timber|
Filament (5♥) is located in Edinburgh's bustling South Side, just beyond the Old Town.
They use seasonal beans from highly acclaimed English Has Bean and Square Mile roasters, tailored for your chosen brew method. Their collection of Aeropress Championship posters makes clear their passion for this style of coffee.
The coffee shop has a light industrial feel, held together with tubular steel and using reclaimed timber for seating and tables. This is softened by bright white walls and warm, hanging light bulbs that play on their filament theme. Friendly staff welcome you to bench seating toward the front of the shop and tables and chairs toward the back.
By way of food you can expect locally sourced, high quality sweet baked goods such as peanut butter brownies and strawberry cheesecake shortbread along with fresh bagels and bread rolls. They also whizz up their own juices.
Definitely a coffee highlight for this area and Edinburgh.
