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.

Staff cupping

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 . . .

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

NEW EVENT!!!

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.
