About Coffee House Lane

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.
