Less than a year on from opening his first Cool Hand Coffee Roasters shop in Kilmainham, Luke Creighan has turned the key on two more, one on Mayor Street in the heart of the IFSC, and the other on Upper Baggot Street in Dublin 2.
Describing his latest caffeinated venture as ‘a one stop-shop for everything you need to brew your chosen blend at home’ Creighan aims to enable customers to witness the ritual of coffee making in a whole new way, as they get to see their coffee order progress from bean to roaster to cup.
In addition to selecting their chosen blend from one of the store’s dispensers, coffee lovers also get a unique opportunity to hand-roast their choice of beans in store.
A selection from over fifteen different countries is available, thanks to partnerships with a number of green coffee importers. With regular takeaway options also on the menu, Creighan clearly takes his pastries as seriously as his coffee, with a fine selection of indulgent bakes ready to grab and go from the Natural Bakery, the company he founded back in 2013.
