Coffee House Lane is the home of Ireland’s first coffee!
In 1690, Coffee House Lane, an actual lane in Waterford which was 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 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 roasting 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’
1690 Freshground Tasting Notes
Chocolate notes on the nose, with butterscotch, caramel and toffee characteristics on the palate. An impressive espresso with bagsful of flavour, whilst milk brings a creaminess that balances the blend. Use one generous dessert spoon of coffee per cup you plan to make in a Cafetiere, a home percolator or an Aeropress.
