Canary Girl Coffee Company
Canary Girl Coffee Company - 504 Cathcart Rd, Glasgow G42 7BX
Canary Girl Coffee Company is specialty coffee roastery in Glasgow Southside, inspired by and in honour of powerful women, like the founder’s grandma. She, as many others, was a “Canary Girl”: this was the original nickname given to the women who did factory works, welding, smithing, building ships and anti aircraft weapons in WWI. The nickname was derived from the yellow/orange colour that the workers skin turned, a side effect of working with TNT. That’s the core of the Canary Girl Coffee Company: celebrating those who didn't make the history books, while providing traceable trade coffee.
