Journal — February 2020

Northern Ireland’s coffee scene has exploded in the last few years. I lived in a sleepy little town on the along the Causeway Coast in the uppermost corner of Northern Ireland for a few months in 2012, and traveled around the country looking for good coffee during that time; there was nothing to be found. That’s changed dramatically in the past 8 years, and now the Island of Ireland (across both the North and the Republic to the south) boasts some of the best roasters in the world. It was tough choosing who to feature, but Bailies stands out and I know you’ll love them. Their head roaster Stephen Houston was recently elected to help lead the world Coffee Roasters Guild. I am also really impressed with their Bailies Direct coffees; you should check out their website for more information about that program.
