Anam Coffee – Speciality coffee including blends, some rare single origin coffees and great decaf
Anam Coffee are a small independent speciality coffee roaster, located in the heart of the Burren. They take time to source and roast coffees with great character.
“We take time to find coffee’s full of character and we hand roast them in small batches to unlock their hidden flavours. We produce coffee that deserves to be savoured. We sell both ground and wholebean coffee. We showcase exceptional quality coffee, described as speciality, and source beans seasonally from small producers and cooperatives all over the world. At the Burren Slow Food Festival, we will have both blends and unique single origin coffee, fully traceable back to origin, for sale and to taste. Come over and meet us and we’ll take you on a fascinating journey exploring some of coffee’s many diverse flavour profiles.”
Anam means soul or spirit in the Irish language and Anam Coffee is the first coffee roaster not only in Clare, but one of only a handful of speciality coffee roasters on the island of Ireland. Starting a coffee roastery in a fierce tea-drinking part of Ireland was Brian O’Briain’s plan to combine the two loves of his life, coffee & The Burren. Anam Coffee is based in an outhouse of the 19th century home between Carron and Kilfenora, hidden away amongst the hazel and blackthorn bush of the Burren. Brian cares passionately about where his coffee comes from, only sourcing seasonal beans from farmers who are paid more for producing extra-ordinary quality and who farm sustainably.
Brian and Alan will be organising tastings and explaining how they source and how they roast over the Slow Food Festival. If you love coffee, please come and visit them in Lisdoonvarna at the Burren Slow Food Festival.
