We love these photos of Ralf from The Barn in Berlin with Hanka, manager of Joe's specialty coffee shop on Montague Street and Leeson Street in Dublin 2. They were taken at our recent coffee cupping here in Dublin . . .
We had a great cupping this week of new beans in from The Barn in Berlin, our main specialty coffee supplier. 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. Really gorgeous tasting notes from the cupping session!!!

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.
