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

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.

Workshop, Cupping, Coffee tasting

UMAMI WORKSHOP

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.

Details and booking here on Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/umami-workshop-tickets-41877043364

Born in The Barn

We have some gorgeous new beans in from The Barn Berlin. They are in our Dublin speciality coffee shops in Arnotts on Liffey Street in Dublin 1 and in our cafe on Montague Street in Dublin 2 near Stephen’s Green.

We have:

La Bandera: a honey-processed Costa Rican which is now our house espresso. Tasting: Macadamia nut. White honey. Smooth.

“The cup has a wonderful texture with a creamy mouth-feel. Tastes of macadamia nut and white honey. The sweetness is supported by a pleasant red apple acidity. La Bandera is located in the Tarrazu Valley where one can find some of the finest coffees of the country. The climate and the volcanic soil offer perfect growing conditions. An elevation of between 1,850-1,950 metres gives the cup its uniqueness.”

Santa Rosa 1900: This Costa Rican filter is new to the Barn, but the farm it’s from always produces such gorgeous coffee. Tasting: Plum. Caramel. Rich.

“Santa Rosa 1900 is a showcase for the superior processing methods in Costa Rica. The Catuai varietal has a great taste profile matching the rich, volcanic soil of this farm. It also has high yield and strong disease resistence. The farm´s micro-climate and the shade tree plantation lead to slow maturing. The result is great sweetness and cup-complexity of this coffee. This cup has flavours of plum and caramel. It has a rich mouth-feel and fantastic sweetness. The acidity gives this coffee a great texture and a long-lasting aftertaste.

El Durazno: This Guatemalan filter is one of the Barn’s standout coffees. Tasting: White Grape. Peach. Soft.

“Misael Rodriguez is a traditional coffee grower in the region of Huehuetenango. He utilizes simple and common techniques both in his coffee plantation and in the processing. It is through his dedication and passion that he obtains such a high quality. The result is a fine intense acidity, a full body and delightful wine notes present in the cup. Flavours of white grapes and fruity peaches combined with its clean finish make this coffee enjoyable all day long.”

Nano Challa: This Ethiopian filter is another coffee that has been tasting truly beautiful in previous seasons. Tasting: Nectarine. Jasmine. Luscious.

“Nano Challa is one of our best Ethiopian coffees year after year. Located in the Gera District of Western Oromia where large tracts of pristine forests remain and coffee trees grow wild. This coffee is extremely clean, sweet and balanced. Rich flavours of nectarine, vanilla and jasmine hit your taste buds right away. Almost perfumey like an aphrodisiac you won´t be able to keep your hands off this coffee. Nano Challa has been supported by TechnoServed, backed by the Gates Foundation. This NGO helps with advice, education and financing to build washing stations. By producing higher quality –  washed – coffees Nano Challa was able to access the international specialty coffee market. Their coffees are absolutely stunning and represent the full potential of what the region’s indigenous beans could taste like.”

All superb and worth tasting!

Thanks.
