Keep up with the Joe's Keep Cup

They’re here! The Joe’s reusable cups have arrived in all our specialty coffee shops in Dublin and are on sale now. And we think they look pretty cool. They are also another step on the road towards full sustainability: glass bottles, cutlery, reducing plastic, etc etc. It’s a gradual process but we’re getting there!

You’ll find the Joe’s branded ‘keep cups’ in Joe’s specialty coffee shops in Arnotts on Liffey Street in Dublin 1 and on Leeson Street and on Montague Street in Dublin 2.

And there’s more:

  • Our branded cups are good value and cheaper than a standard keep cup. They are made from the same reinforced glass.

  • Our branded cups have a removable rubber sleeve (unlike the cork sleeve keep cup) so the glass can go in the dishwasher. Note: the rubber lid and rubber sleeve should be washed by hand in tepid water.

  • Our branded cups are 100% Irish. Keep it local.

And you still get your discount, as part of the Conscious Cup campaign, in all Joe’s when using a keep cup, the Joe’s ones or otherwise.

And note that our ‘little sisters’ Alchemy Juice Co and Itsa Cafes also now have their own branded keep cups.

Thanks.

NEW COFFEE WORKSHOP!

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!

ALL GO FOR JOE!

Folks, Sunday (June 30th) was our last day in Dundrum Town Centre with another operator moving in there soon. We've loved being part of the centre and want to thank all our loyal customers for being so brilliant! And, of course, you'll still find us in Arnotts on Liffey Street in Dublin 1 and on Leeson Street and Montague Street in Dublin 2.

And, by the way, as part of our re-organisation, we're expanding and renovating our specialty coffee shop on Montague Street (just off Harcourt Street, near Stephen’s Green). So it will be closed from Monday, July 1st until Wednesday, July 3rd, reopening on Thursday, July 4th.

Sorry for any inconvenience!

But if you need your specialty coffee fix from The Barn, you will still find us over on Leeson Street, just off Stephen’s Green. We also have our range of smoothies and Alchemy Juice Co juices there too, as well killer sambos and super salads. So drop by while we get a makeover on Montague.

So thanks for patience and loyalty and see you on Leeson Street and Montague Street in the coming days!

Team Joe

The good news . . .

Joe's has joined the Conscious Cup Campaign! We offer a 10 cent discount to customers who bring their own reusable cups into Joe's.

‘Globally it is estimated that 500 billion disposable cups are discarded to landfill or incineration every year. That’s one million cups a minute, every hour of every day of every year. These cups are virtually impossible to recycle due to the combination of plastic and paper in their design, and in Ireland we estimate that we dispose of over 22,000 of these non-recyclable cups every hour. ‘

Let’s all do our bit . . .

We have always focused on serving the best specialty coffee – with beans from The Barn Berlin (www.thebarn.de) as well as from other renowned roasters from around the world – but we now wanted to add to our food offering. All our cafes already serve killer sandwiches and super salads, including from Alchemy Juice Co (www.alchemyjuice.ie), but we wanted to add a bit more to the Harvey Nichols store.

Joe's new salads for Dundrum October 2017.jpg

Coffee tasting, Specialty coffee

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!
