Cult Espresso

104 Buccleuch St
Open every day
Espresso, Kalita wave
Coffee: Round Hill & guests
Also: Light meals, cakes
Coolness: Exposed brink industrial vibe with warmth

Cult Espresso (5♥) is on the South Side of the Old Town, near Edinburgh University.

The friendly Cult folk feature guest coffees alongside seasonal Round Hill Roastery beans and choose the right bean for your brew method.

Cult offers espresso-based coffee and Kalita Wave pour over coffee. For those less familiar with Kalita Wave, its a drip-filter coffee gizmo that has a flat bottom that contributes to a more even, fuller brew.

The space itself is long and narrow. The street frontage is quite small but the shop drops down about half-way through offering ample seating on two levels. The fit-out and decor is warm while having an industrial feel to it.

Brunch on the menu ranges from granola and porridge to poached eggs and waffles. Lunches include sandwiches, soups and quiche, all of which can be followed up with tempting cakes and pastries.

Highly recommended!
