What you'll do

Three Olympic champions/coffee company owners bring a unique experience to Edinburgh. 5 Rings Coffee was launched by Rio de Janerio 2016, Team GB teammates, Owain Doull, Philip Hindes and Callum Skinner (Edinburgian). Whilst preparing for the Olympic games our passion for coffee grew, it was our "pub" as alcohol was off-limits. All of our coffees have unique names relating to a story from our careers. In 1 hour we'll tell you about our Olympic experience, show our Olympic medals help you brew your own perfect coffee with the help of one of our world-class local Baristas. We'll exclusively host you in our new flagship location in city centre Edinburgh. One or more of our Olympic champions will host the experience each bringing a unique element. Callum Skinner grew up in Edinburgh, he'll share his unique knowledge of the city and how Edinburgh kickstarted a cycling revolution in the U.K. Philip Hindes (fließend Deutsch) is targeting Tokyo 2020 and a skilled Barista. Owain Doull has tales from many Belgian Classics and the Vuelta a España riding for team INEOS.

I've lived all over the U.K. but I grew up in Edinburgh. The late, great Meadowbank (Edinburgh) Velodrome kickstarted my journey to winning Olympic gold at the 2016 Rio de Janerio Olympic Games. I've had some unique awards and experiances in the city, in 2017 I turned on the Christmas lights and was presented the "Edinburgh Local Hero" award. I love meeting new people and welcoming guests to the city. To combine my passion for the city, coffee and my Olympic career into one experience is something I'm very excited to share with you.

Where you'll be

5 Rings Cafe, 33 George Street is in the centre of the new town. We called our first location "Meadowbank" after the late, great Velodrome that used to be based in the city. Our coffee bar is made out of a reclaimed section of the Velodrome, the largest single section in existence. We also have the finest equipment available to help you brew your perfect coffee provided by La Marzocco.
