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’

An Ethiopian legend tells of a young shepherd named Kaldi and his herd of goats, and how one day they unexpectedly came across a dozen little trees with many red cherries. They were not ordinary cherries, for when his herd ate these cherries they became exceptionally awake and lively. Even Kaldi tried the cherries and was very pleased with the fact that they gave him enough energy to watch his goats more carefully throughout the night.

Many people believe that Ethiopia is the birth place of the Arabica-coffee-tree. The tree grows best at heights of 1,200-1,800 meters. The main crop is from October to December.
