Common is a Scottish coffee roastery based at Rosemains Steading in Pathhead, Midlothian. We started in 2018 with a mission to strip away coffee jargon, lead with flavour and colour, while doing some good along the way.

We now have six flavour-led roasts: Bold, Strong, Sweet, Bright, Complex and Decaf. The origins may change with the seasons, but you’ll always be able to rely on delicious coffee that does what it says on the tin (well…bag).


Common started its life with one straightforward idea – good coffee, made simple. From humble beginnings in Fife Scotland, we have navigated our way through five years of learning. We are proud to be an independent business that puts people at the heart of everything we do. For us, being part of this amazing coffee community is a privilege we hold close to our hearts.

As we look to the future, Common aims to place continued emphasis on how we can connect more people through our shared love of coffee.


We began our journey with four flavour-led roasts that highlight the variety of coffee. You can get all four in a set and enjoy the different flavours of coffee depending on what you feel like throughout the day. Or, if you’ve found your absolute favourite, each roast can be ordered individually.

Ordering good coffee in is made simple with Common. Our coffee comes in fully recyclable packaging, so wherever you are in Scotland or throughout the UK, you can be sure you’re drinking coffee that’s been roasted for the Common good.


In 2021 we were lucky enough to join the business community that is Rosemains Steading in Pathhead. A small group of independent businesses who have come together to share ideas, resources and of course the odd struggle. 

We have also continued to invest in the development of using an electric roaster. We operate a 12kg Electric Probat. While not currently widely used, we believe making the move to electric is an important step to ensuring longevity within the coffee industry. The consistency of the electric roaster is something that continues to impress us and we look forward to more roasters joining us on the journey to electric roasting.
