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.

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 are thrilled to announce that our latest guest roaster is the legendary Square Mile out of London. Recognised as one of the best speciality coffee roasters in the world, their beans really are the best and are always so popular with our customers. They are available in our speciality coffee shops in Dublin city centre on Montague Street and in Arnotts on Liffey Street in Dublin 1 as well as in our new coffee shop on Leeson Street just off Stephen’s Green.

We have three espressos and five filters in from Square Mile, including:

Red Brick (espresso; Costa Rica and Guatemala): MILK CHOCOLATE/COLA/CITRUS.

“As the crops change, so do the components of our Red Brick, highlighting harvest cycles and celebrating the seasonality of coffee. We've combined the great fruit qualities from each component and allowed the sweetness to shine. Our current seasonal blend is composed of two different lots of coffee from two different origins. It is 50% Santa Anita (Costa Rica) / 50% Huehuetenango (Guatemala).”:

El Vendabal (espresso; Costa Rica): YELLOW PLUM/HAZELNUT/CRÈME BRÛLÉE

“We're happy to welcome the El Vendabal back into our coffee line up, with this year's lot roasted for use with espresso machines and Moka pots. The coffee shows clean crisp acidity, like a ripe yellow plum, nutty notes of hazelnut and the rich goodness of crème brûlée!”

Bosques (filter; Guatemala): ORANGE/ TREACLE/ PRALINE

Another fruity coffee from our seasonal regular Bosques de San Francisco. Hailing from the Antigua region of Guatemala this lot shows a sweet, heavy, treacly body, accompanied by fresh oranges and nutty chocolate praline flavours. This will be a real crowd pleaser we're sure!

We also have the Guaracho espresso and the Ngarariga AB, Sumava Lourdes, Kayon Mountain and Juanachute filters.

If you like coffee, you will love these.
