Coolness: Choices of brew method and some of Scotland's finest specialty coffees

Turadh (4♥) - pronounced 'to-rigg' - is located in Glasgow's busy West End and showcases Scottish produce across their menu, including their big focus on specialty coffee.

Owner LeeAnne Robson, previously General Manager at Avenue Coffee, opened Turadh in late 2017 and they're serving up some cracking coffee.

Turadh will feature only Scottish roasters, changing the coffees seasonally and roasters regularly. Coffee lovers can expect a menu of three different filter coffees and can choose from Chemex, Aeropress or V60 brew methods. There'll also be an additional espresso guest, plus cold brew. When we visited, Turadh featured coffees from Steampunk (North Berwick), Machina (Edinburgh) and Thomson's (Glasgow). And you can buy retail bags of any of these beauties to take home.

The food menu - using Scottish produce - is big! Breakfast takes many shapes from granola and porridge to a full Scottish or variants with salmon, avocado and more. Lunch includes soups, salads, stovies and sandwiches and there are plenty of cakes, smoothies and other treats.

Vegans and vegetarians will find happiness, with almond and soy milks as well as food choices, as will those who go gluten free. Turmeric, matcha and chai lattes are also available, should they take your fancy.

There's plenty of seating on ground level as well as in an upstairs mezzanine area. The simple black and white decor is smart and the service friendly and attentive.

Showcasing a range of Scotland's best roasters at the same time is a great idea and then expertly making them across multiple brew methods clinches it. Turadh means "the break in the clouds between showers" in Gaelic and this coffee shop is certainly a ray of coffee sunshine!
