About Us

We are an Edinburgh based specialist coffee roastery and equipment business started through a love of great coffee and a fascination with quality kit. 

The creation of Machina, was inspired by the Edinburgh’s artisan coffee scene which has really exploded in the last 10 years, along with inspiring visits to the San Francisco, LA, Wellington, Tokyo and London coffee scenes.

We’ve done a huge amount of research into the best kit out there and are delighted to have introduced some of the best commercial grade equipment to homes and cafes across the UK.

An important part of our mission is to make choosing and buying coffee gear, straightforward and enjoyable. That is why we’ve provided buying guides and reviews on our site and blog. We offer training for domestic and trade customers too. We’ve tried our best to lose the ‘geek-speak’, but if there’s ever anything that’s unclear – please do drop us a line.

Come and See Us

We run cafes on Brougham Place and Nicolson Street in Edinburgh. The Brougham Place cafe also stocks our full range of equipment. Pop in to check out the best specialist grinders, espresso machines, brew kit and accessories (and some amazing coffees).  If there's something in particular you would like to demo at the shop, drop us a line beforehand so we can arrange this for you.
