Laika is a specialty coffee roaster setup in Lathlain. The name "Laika" comes from the Soviet space dog who, in 1957, became the first animal to orbit the Earth. It is with the greatest respect to Laika, and her one-way journey, that they approach their coffee with the same sense of limitless discovery.
In place of a traditional roasting catalogue which might include a “House Blend” and small range of available single origins, Laika have two ranges of singles: black and white.
Their black coffees are small “micro-lots” which rotate seasonally, and are best enjoyed without milk, either as espresso, filter, or anything in-between.
Their white range is comprised of larger lots which feature for longer periods at a time and are roasted to a degree where they’ll still have presence and intensity when served with milk.
