Two Birds to unveil its new product to city’s aficionados at Glasgow Coffee Festival
Glasgow-based start-up, Two Birds, is set to unveil an exciting new product at this weekend’s Glasgow Coffee Festival – a vitamin-enriched cold-blend coffee.
Last month, the lifestyle brand launched a boutique fitness studio in the city’s business district. Now, the company has unveiled its ready-to-drink coffee as the perfect grab and go caffeine hit for people with a busy lifestyle or demanding job.
The coffee is roasted locally in Glasgow by award-winning Dear Green Coffee Roasters using the ethically sourced Brazilian Fazenda Pantano coffee bean. The pioneering product is enriched with Two Birds unique blend of antioxidants, vitamin C, and echinacea, then finished off with a touch of ginger, turmeric and agave.
An innovative newcomer to the market, Two Birds cold blend, is totally vegan and offers a healthier option to consumer’s morning coffee.
Two Birds will gather feedback from the city’s most discerning coffee drinkers at The Briggait this weekend. Festival-goers will be asked to drop a coffee bean into a YES or NO pint glass, depending on whether they like the taste or not.
Young entrepreneur Daniel Stevenson, 24, co-founded the Two Birds brand with his brother Greg, and father Neil, a successful entrepreneur and business leader who founded Transition Extreme Sports, a £2.7m extreme sports centre and social enterprise in Aberdeen.
He said: “We’ve been developing our unique Two Birds cold-blend coffee for over a year now and we’re very excited to let people try it for themselves. People can now enjoy the caffeine boost of a speciality grade coffee with all the added immune function and anti-inflammatory benefits from the host of vitamins in our unique blend.”
“There’s no better way to find out what the great and good of Glasgow’s exciting coffee scene think than at the Glasgow Coffee Festival - it’s the perfect place to launch and we can’t wait to hear what the country’s coffee lovers have to say.
“We are confident everyone will love our drink just as much as we do.”
Last week, Dear Green founder Lisa Lawson predicted the product would be a “big hit” and “one of the trends to look out for this year”.
