‘Passion Drives Perfection’
Godshot started with a simple idea: to find the perfect shot of coffee. Founder Sam Amdjadi set out to explore the wider community to enhance this small daily pleasure. What he discovered were honest, dedicated and skilled makers – not just that of coffee, but various other artisanal products – the backbone of creative endeavour.
Godshot was born out of a desire to connect makers of aesthetic, honest, unobtrusive, and innovative products with people who enjoy buying more unique and hand made pieces. The idea was to explain the process, the failures, successes, and the passion behind these objects. During a 4 year project, the search was widened to find makers in countries such as Japan, South Korea, Iran, Hungry, Denmark, France, Norway, Scotland, and Mexico. The principle remained: find the Godshot – seek perfection. Whether it be a cup of coffee, a piece of art, a pen, chocolate, lighting, poem. In 2019 Sam teamed up with Lesley Tang, a patisserie chef who had led a career of seeking perfection in the art of luxury patisserie and worked under some of the best in the field. Her training and passion stemmed from a love of Far Eastern flavours, philosophy, and exacting aesthetics.
Start Small, But do Start
In 2021 Sam and Lesley took Godshot to print and in store – Godshot Studio would be the merger of passions and ideas. The team is now further complemented by passionate creatives, who bring fresh ideas and energy, and enhance the spirit of Godshot.
The space in the heart of Southside Glasgow is currently being refurbished to house the interior and graphic design studio and due for launch on June 17th, which will also have:
