This 1690 Freshground 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. 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 mucilge. 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.
Over 325 years ago, in 1690, Coffee House Lane, adjacent to the then busy trading part 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 Aikenheads Coffee House on what became, Coffee House Lane of Waterford.
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 the Bergin Family have a strong reputation in Coffee Roasting in the South East, each pack is guaranteed to be as amazing as the last. Each packet of Coffee House Lane has unique flavours that will ensure you return for more.
