Black Sheep Coffee, the Robusta rebel of the coffee world, is proud to announce the opening of its newest site in Haymarket Square, Edinburgh, on 14th May 2024.

Located in the heart of bustling Haymarket Square, the latest Black Sheep Coffee brings its signature blend of passion and rebellion to Edinburgh. The new site aims to provide locals and visitors with an unforgettable coffee experience from Edinburgh’s baristas in a laid-back, welcoming space. From carefully crafted coffees to refreshing smoothies and an indulgent selection of pastries and waffles, there is something for everyone to enjoy. With Edinburgh being a creative hub in the UK with a famously rich culture, the city is very special to the brand.

The new opening demonstrates the recent growth for the Black Sheep Coffee family, as it expands further across the UK, with over 90 stores—and nearly 40 opened in the last year alone. The pioneering coffee group is rapidly expanding, combining a passion for coffee and a mission to challenge the big corporate chains, along with harnessing support and funding from their loyal customers and those who believe in the values of the company.


Renowned for unapologetically bold flavours and an unrivalled commitment to quality, Black Sheep Coffee are innovators in the space. By sourcing the first specialty-grade 100% Robusta coffee, they went against market trends and became the ‘Black Sheep’ of the coffee world. With a commitment to sustainability and ethically sourced beans, every cup of Black Sheep Coffee is a statement of rebellion against the ordinary. The coffee shop group also achieved another world first with the launch of their Lion’s Mane Latte, which is made up of Lion’s Mane, ashwagandha, rhodiola rosea extract, and B12.

Gabriel Shohet and Eirik Holth commented on the launch, “We’re so excited to be launching our newest Black Sheep Coffee site in Edinburgh and creating another coffee haven for those who dare to be different. With Edinburgh’s rich culture of creativity, we feel that this is a perfect new spot for us to open in.”
