The greenest of GOATs
A new cafe and small-batch coffee roasters has opened in Monkstown Crescent, Monkstown. The interior of Green Goat Coffee looks so green, they look like they practically grow the beans in there as well as roasting them.
The store is the work of Ireland’s green-fingered don Diarmuid Gavin, who created The Outer Spaces store in conjunction with Dunnes Stores. The Outer Spaces sells indoor and outdoor plants, as well as furniture, tiles and lifestyle bits, tucked in through the jungle of plants is Green Goat Coffee.
Selling in-house-roasted small-batch coffees, Green Goat Coffee also have treats from Firehouse bakery out in Wicklow.
Their retail bags are also available with ground and beans from Columbia and Brazil. The team are focusing their brews on coffee from the Asociación de Mujeres Agropecuarias de Uribe an organisation of women farmers and landowners in El Tambo, Columbia. The organisation aims to improve their families’ quality of life through coffee farming, Green Goat Coffee has said that they are “lucky to be working with their coffee for the next few months”.
Speaking of the launch the founder wrote on Instagram, “I’m really delighted with the blood sweat and tears that have gone into green goat coffee to bring it to this point.”
Green Goat Coffee is located in 14 Monkstown Crescent, open from 10am-6pm daily, follow them on Instagram for more information.
