1690 Blend Coffee Beans – 227g


This 1690 Wholebean coffee originates in Honduras and Guatamala. Using 8gms of finely ground coffee, you will get an exceptional espresso, or grind a little coarser for top quality filter, cafetiere or Aeropress brews.

Coffee House Lane is the home of Ireland’s first coffee!

In 1690, Coffee House Lane, an actual lane in Waterford which was adjacant 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 Coffee House Lane.

Mark Bergin of Coffee House Lane tells us that ‘Our Coffee House Lane range is not just inspired by the name but also by the ethos of coffee roasing and brewing back in 1690. This ethos is the cornerstone of our own business – we select only the finest quality coffee beans from all over the world and roast them in small batches in our Toper Roaster as seen on the front of our coffee packs’

This hand picked coffee is processed through the wet method. Red ripe cherry is harvested from the fields. This is then disc-pulped immediately (within 6-8 hours of harvest) and fermented to break down the mucilage. When fermentation is complete, the parchment is washed with clean water, graded and spread onto raised beds for drying. While sun drying, all defective beans are removed by hand.


Our Multi Award winning signature blend, named after the year the first coffee was roasted brewed and sold in Ireland. This Arabica Blend is from Honduras and Guatemala, and leaves you with slight notes of toffee and caramel.

    I recently bought a Mellita super automatic coffee machine. Had it for couple of days and tested it with different types of beans from local roastery and also some from supermarket shelves. I was getting frustrated as even though the coffee machine had really good reviews I wasn’t able to get a nice strong, rich taste espresso. It got to the point where I had my machine half-packed ready for returning it to Amazon… and then I went to my Supervalu and got these beans… Without changing any settings I tried these beans and immediately started unpacking the machine 🙂 They gave me exactly what I was looking for – strong, fully bodied espresso with a rich crema – Italian coffee shop quality! The price is very reasonable too. Thank you CHL!
