Ever wondered what the ideal coffee shop would look like? Dave Law and Tom Hyde did and now they are transforming former university offices in Edinburgh into a coffee shop that brings together the “best of everything”. Due to open at the end of September, Brew Lab celebrates the traditional coffee house but also adds products from carefully-chosen artisan suppliers and sophisticated coffee-making technology. Dave and Tom even turned to the internet to help them design their venture, using suggestions from Facebook fans so that there will be plenty of power sockets, gluten-free cakes and relaxed seating areas.
