The Story of Coffee House Lane

Over 330 years ago in 1690, Coffee House Lane, adjacent to the then busy trading port of Waterford, boasted what is long believed to be Ireland's first ever coffee house. Green Coffee was traded at the port, then roasted, brewed and sold at John Aikenhead's Coffee House on what became Coffee House Lane of Waterford

Our range is not just inspired by the name, but also by the ethos of coffee roasting and brewing back in 1690. This ethos is the cornerstone of our business  - we select only the finest green arabica coffee beasn from all over the world and slowly raost them, to a medium-dark roast in small batches, in our Toper Roasters here in Waterford. Our smooth and rich falviured coffee is filled with heritage and know-how...we roast by sense; by watching, listening, smelling and tasting eacn and every roast, as roaster would have done in 1690.

As the Bergin Family have a strong reputation for coffee roasting in the South East, each pack is guaranteed to be as amazing as the last

Our Team

When Coffee House Lane started out, we were committed to not only producing Artisan Coffee of the highest quality but, also building a business that we had fun working at. Turns out, succeeding at that is all about surrounding yourself with amazing people. Over the years, the Coffee House Lane team has grown to a lively, warm group of people, all of whom show incredible care for not only their work but also their colleagues and all those we work with. 

We’re incredibly proud of our crew – they’re what make this journey so much fun.
