Our Story

Who are we?

We’re really proud to be a specialty grade coffee roaster based in Bo’ness.  We keep stuff simple, so you can cut through the noise, and choose a coffee you’re gonna love.

Our Beginning

With a big time love of coffee, Fraser (founder of Vice Roast), decided to turn a dream into reality by starting a coffee roastery.

Today, Vice Roast is proud to roast specialty grade coffee from our roastery in the heart of Scotland. We take our time choosing beans and deciding on the best roast profiles.  We ALWAYS roast to order, quality check and pack in our hand stamped bags.

And the name?  It’s simple – drinking (too much) amazing coffee is our Vice.

Our Vision

We believe that everyone should be drinking great coffee so we’ll continue to roast the specialty grade stuff (scoring 80 or more by the SCA – Specialty Coffee Association).

We know that coffee can be a confusing subject to navigate – from bean processing to the different ways to roast, not to mention all the ways to brew it! We’ll make it as simple as possible for you guys to choose a coffee, and hopefully not cause you any confusion.

We also want to create a community of ‘Vicers’ and get people talking about coffee. If there’s something you want to see us do (or stop doing), get in touch at info@viceroast.com. It’s a two-way street, and we look forward to hearing from you – even if it’s just to say hi!  Also feel free to check out our instagram page
