The 'Labin': A hand built laboratory-cabin
When we began roasting our coffees, we wanted to use a space that was functional, sustainably constructed and creative. Essentially an icon for what Chimney Fire Coffee represents. At the beginning of 2016, we started speaking with carpenter Bruce Mactaggart (BM Carpentry) to see how this might be achieved. After three months of hard work, the 'Labin' was standing in our back garden, with a roaster installed. We named it the 'Labin' because it's 50% laboratory (functionally) and 50% cabin (aesthetically).
Chimney Fire Coffee are hosting 'coffee experiences' in the Labin as part of a new Airbnb initiative. We invite guests to learn about coffee production, roast their own beans and 'cup' different coffees. Click below to find out more.
