Coffee House Lane is the home of Ireland’s first coffee!
In the 17th century, 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’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 the 17th century. 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’
In the majestic Andes mountains that surround the town of Montebello in Antioquia a beautiful farm named Sabanitas is cared by Mr. Jesus Gaviria, who prides himself in producing coffee with excellence and in perfect harmony with the environment.
The high altitude of his farm, rich soils of volcanic origin, pristine waters that he carefully protects and his strong belief for preserving old style wet processing techniques passed on by three generations of farmers are the key to producing a beautiful coffee.
