 Who we are:

Roasted Notes is an Irish company with a passion for great coffee, sourced directly from a family-run farm in Minas Gerais, Brazil. Our coffee is roasted in a micro-roaster here in Ireland. A specific cultivation process allows our coffee to excel as a single origin espresso shot, drip coffee and also cold brew. The SCA cup score of this collection is 82—84 points.


Our first Roasted Notes café opened in the UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School in Dublin, and now you can also find us in Talent Garden in DCU Alpha Campus, and in the Swords Pavilions Shopping Centre. We also supply our specialty beans to cafés and restaurants throughout the country.
