NEW IN FROM THE BARN

We are delighted to have a range of new specialty coffee beans just arrived in from The Barn Berlin, our partner roaster. These are really special . . .  as always. You’ll find them in our specialty coffee shops on Liffey Street in Arnotts in Dublin 1, in Dundrum Town Centre and in Kildare Village Retail Outlet as well as in our two shops on Montague Street and Leeson Street in Dublin 2.

We have the following:

Marcos Limongi out of Brazil: Almond. Mandarin orange. Silky.

“Limongi´s relentless dedication matched with an incredibly steep terrain both challenges manual work while nestling the trees among mountainside crevices. This creates for an ideal habitat for the trees with more shade and cooler breezes bringing out an incredibly diverse cup profile.”

El Diamante out of Honduras: Dark grapes. Red apple. Silky.

“Coffees from Honduras can be amazing when they are from the right places and are processed well. They often have more complexity, depth and richness than most other Central American coffees. El Diamante is a small farm in the Western part of Honduras. The cup has notes of dark grapes, red apple, almonds and florals. The mouthfeel is buttery. Francisco Alvarado is part of a new movement of small farmers who invest in owning micro mills to process quality coffees on their farms. Rather than just selling cherries to traders. The coffees are handpicked, separated by varietal, washed and dried slowly on raised beds.”

La Isla out of Costa Rica: Pineapple. Guava. Vibrant.

“Laszlo Banyai originates from Hungary and has a background in wine. He applied his wine experience to Specialty Coffee and we are proud to present the result of his hard work. This honey processed coffee is a tropical experience: Strong flavours of pineapple, guava and papaya. High sweetness and an exciting acidity. Laszlo acquired two farms in Costa Ricas famous West Valley five years ago, La Isla and Lourdes. We are proud to offer our first season from La Isla. Costa Rica is known for clean processing and its different types of honey coffees. We will do processing experiments with La Isla and grow our partnership with them.”

Mahembe out of Rwanda: Sweet cherry. Chocolate. Black tea.

“Rwanda has a long tradition of growing coffee but only recently saw strong uplifts in processing quality. Mahembe is located in the Western Province near Lake Kivu. This coffee is the most interesting one in the region. Notes of caramel chocolate, morello cherries and black tea add to the complexity of this cup. Justin Musabyiama returned to his homeland after the 1994 Genocide. He started Mahembe washing station in 2008. With a strong focus on quality and community building Justin now produces 75% of A1 grades and takes a top five position every year in the Cup of Excellence (CEO). He offers health insurance, school fees and cows as premium payment to his farmers.”

We think you may love them.

Thanks.

UMAMI WORKSHOP

Here are a selection of photos from our Umami Workshop with Susie Kealy of The Barn Berlin which took place in our specialty coffee shop on Montague Street in Dublin on January 23rd, 2018. It was a great night with a fab crowd. We had lots of fun but we also learnt a lot about coffee beans, grinding, cupping and the different flavours our mouths can detect, from sweet and sour to salty and bitter and, of course, umami.

Huge thanks to Susie for being such an informative host for the evening!
