Congratulations to Two Beans

24. 05. 2016

We are delighted to announce that Two Beans, located at 11 Georges Street Lower Dún Laoghaire, has been certified “World of Coffee Ambassador 2016”.

About the Contest: In 2015, SCAE Ireland launched the Ambassador’s Club, an exciting and innovative new programme whereby approximately 30 of the best cafes, restaurants, hotels and bars serving speciality coffee in Dublin would be chosen as finalists and supported through a detailed range of training and marketing initiatives.

The vision was to establish Dublin as one of the world’s greatest coffee destinations in time for the World of Coffee event this coming June and to create a lasting legacy that would benefit the city long beyond the staging of World of Coffee & World Barista Championships.

With support from Dublin Town, the process started in May 2015 when hospitality operators across the city were invited to apply to become a World of Coffee Ambassador and help to inspire coffee excellence. Nearly 160 outlets applied and the thorough auditing process began late last year. The process involved off-site training days, a one-to-one on-site training session along with three on-site audits completed by Jon Skinner, Independent Barista Trainer .

According to Richard Guiney CEO of Dublin Town; “The coffee scene in Dublin is growing in popularity and now that 30 businesses being internationally certified for their barista skills it’s only going to get better. I’m proud to see that more than half of those certified are DublinTown members.  The city continues to evolve and change with the times, and as the demand for coffee increases the quality of coffee outlets follows suit. DublinTown is working with its members through the Unique to Dublin programme, which supports independent retailers such as coffee houses.
