We are delighted to be now serving specialty coffee beans from Sliverskin Coffee Roasters here in Kildare Village.

This renowned Dublin coffee roaster was founded by Brian Kenny who has 20 years experience in the coffee industry. He also represented Ireland in the World Cupping Championships in 2006 and is one of the most passionate specialty coffee people working in Ireland.

Over the years, he has developed strong links with growers and suppliers and was probably most famous at one point for his iconic Coffee Kiosk in Ballsbridge. At just 37 square feet, it was probably the smallest roastery in the world!

Here’s Brian on the Silverskin approach: ‘Only the highest quality specialty coffee is purchased and roasted onsite. Strict quality measures are used when sourcing green beans. All green beans are measured for moisture, density and size. This allows for specific roasting profiles to be assigned to individual coffees. Our coffee is craft-roasted daily in small batches to guarantee freshness and allow us to maintain strict quality control throughout the entire roasting process. It is packaged immediately in airtight, one-way valve bespoke packaging to maintain freshness.’

They recently opened a new state of the art roastery at Blackwater Road in the Dublin Industrial Estate in Glasnevin.

We are thrilled to be working with people like Brian and his team who are so passionate about their coffee. They also provide excellent support and training to all our staff. And they also now use Silverskin coffee beans in the two Itsa Cafes in Dun Laoghaire and in Arnotts at the Abbey Street entrance, as well as in the Kemp Sisters Gallery Cafe in Imma.

We hope you love Brian’s coffee as much as we do.
