The present Brodie Company comprises an amalgamation of Brodie, Melrose and Drysdale, three famous Edinburgh tea and coffee merchants.
Based in Leith, Brodies of Edinburgh have been importing the finest Arabica coffees from around the world since 1867. At their new production unit on the outskirts of Edinburgh, expert roasters use traditional methods to achieve a consistently flavoursome result.
In addition to teas and coffees, Brodies of Edinburgh have been producing high quality chocolates and cakes since 1994 (see the selection in the Scottish Produce Department of this site).
