Staff cupping with the guys from The Barn is the favourite part of our job. We get to savour all the beautiful flavours in their specialty coffees.
This week we welcomed Alex who talked us through all the latest beans from The Barn which we will now have in store for you.
Specialty coffee is a constant learning process and with Ralf and the team from The Barn, we get the best training and refresher courses in everything from selecting farmers and growers to importing beans to roasting them and finally to brewing them for you.
And we love to share too, so if you have any questions, just ask your Joe’s barista . . .

It's time to start brewing at home and using your French press or whatever system you prefer. Many of us have kit at home and we don't use it . . . for many reasons:
1. We think we know how to use it but the results are not as expected, and we end up putting it away.
2. We have no idea which coffee to buy, where to buy it and how much of it to use.
This and many other reasons pushed us away from using our beautiful brewing devices. Join Roger for a hands-on workshop in Arnotts on Saturday July 6th from 10am-11am where you'll learn how to use your French press with gorgeous specialty coffee beans from The Barn! Discover why this brewing device is still popular among coffee aficionados, its beauty and how easy it is to use and to clean.
Places are free but limited so make sure you secure yours here on Eventbrite.
Any coffee equipment you buy in Joe’s Coffee on the day will also have a 20% discount!

Karla got a bag of coffee from Sumatra and she prepared it on her french press and drank it. The next day her friend Laura asked her "Karla, did you like the coffee?" and Karla said to Laura "Not really, it was bitter, the only way I kinda enjoyed it was when I added a lot of milk and five spoons of sugar"*
If this has happened to you before, then this course in our specialty coffee shop in Arnotts Dublin is for you. Come and join us, it will be fun, you'll learn how to use your french press, how to prepare a tasty coffee at home, plus you'll get 20% off any coffee equipment you buy!
It's a complimentary session, and the good news is that if you can't make it to the first session at 10:00 am then you can book your seat for the second session at 17:30! No need to attend both sessions since we will be covering the same information in both of them.
It’s free but secure your spot here on Eventbrite as spaces are limited.

It took place among staff from the four Joe’s coffee shops in Arnotts in Dublin 1, from Dundrum Town Centre and from our Montague Street and Leeson Street shops in Dublin 2.

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!

NEW EVENT! Join Susie Kealy from The Barn Berlin for a special UMAMI WORKSHOP in our Montague Street coffee shop on Tuesday, January 23rd.
Susie will present this sensory session that should not be missed. Umami is a scientifically recognised fifth basic flavour; along with sweet, sour/acidity, bitter and salty. It was only acknowledged at the beginning of the 20th century, and is said to describe the ‘meaty’ or ‘savoury’ flavour that appears in, among other things, cooked meat, vegetables and cheese.
This sensory workshop will be an introduction to this fifth taste and will include tasting of various water solutions, food items and, of course, cupping different coffees.
Refreshments and snacks will be available.
