Hi, I lived in Dublin for a few years when in college and moved to New York when I graduated last year. I've liked coffee for years but knew very little about it even despite working as a barista in a coffee shop in Dublin. I knew that most of the coffee I was drinking regularly was for the most part poor in quality but as I was never really exposed to high quality coffee I didn't really care, it tasted good enough to drink so I was happy. Anyway long story short I now work as a full time barista at one of the most popular cafe's in New York and sort of fell in to it through a far lesser known coffee job I had over here. The cafe I work for is called La'Colombe and is also a very successful roasting company and has been around since the early 90's. Anyway now that I know a bit about coffee and am fortunate enough to work in a place that does some of the best coffee in NYC I am wondering what is going on with coffee back home. I never knew anything about it while I was living back there and I am wondering are there any really good coffee places in Dublin? Even in NY good coffee is still a relatively new wave here and something that has only started to boom in recent years. The West Coast and Seattle have been famous for its coffee culture long before NY and roasting companies are only recently starting to crop up in NY. Bluebottle and Stumptown are two of the very well known coffee roasters that have set up in NY. Anyway since none of my friends back home know much about coffee I thought I would ask on here.
