About Us

Female founder Mhairi Mackenzie (Bonnie Bling) grew up on the Isle of Bute later moving on to Glasgow where she met Lisa Lawson (a Brandane from Bute) who runs Glasgow based B Corp Roastery, Dear Green. Both award winning women have created recognised businesses in their chosen fields and have joined forces to create a speciality coffee scene here on Bute. Mhairi has relocated back to the island with her family with both Bonnie Bling and now Bute Coffee where she employs a talented team who are regularly put through their paces with professional SCA level training certifications.

Whatever coffee you drink, we want to involve everyone in our journey to create a product that Bute can be proud of. Not only do we ship our coffee straight to your door but we also have a coffee bar based within Bonnie Bling right in the heart of Rothesay. You can find us on Castle Street along from Rothesay Castle and the infamous Serpentine Road.

 Our very first coffee is our signature Bute Blend which has been complimented on by many; including Hollywood superstar Chris Pine, celebrity chef Rick Stein, our lovely pal the Hebridean Baker and let's not forget caffeinating the team from The Hairy Bikers earlier this year! 

Our Roasters 

Whilst it is our aim to grow our knowledge and skills so that we can start to roast our own there is no doubt that we couldn't be where we are without our pals at Dear Green. The amazing team there roast delicious, fresh, seasonal & ethically sourced coffee beans in Glasgow. 100% speciality grade coffee. B Corp certified. Organic. 

'We are delighted to have Lisa to guide us through the very best of the coffee world, making sure every single cup meets the highest standards, we are in good hands!

Together we want to add to the existing local food and drink offerings on Bute and can't wait for you to join us for a cup of Isle of Bute Coffee soon!'
