Tasting & Talks with Root & Branch Coffee Roasters

  • Root & Branch 1B Jameson Street Belfast, Northern Ireland, BT7 2GU United Kingdom (map)

2:30pm: Tour of Root & Branch Coffee Roasters
(1B Jameson St. Belfast, BT72GU)
Meet at our Coffee Roastery & Brew Bar to see and hear about roasting and brewing in store.

2:45-3:45pm: Cupping & talk on Innovation of Coffee Processing.
(Upstairs at Northern Lights, across the street from the Coffee Roastery)
We’ve been working on a collaboration with the Bushmills Distillery for their North American market to produce a coffee designed to create the best Irish coffee ever conceived. The cask conditioned coffee will be roasted on Mon 27th/Tues 28th Nov and shipped to the US on Friday 1st December. So, we’ll keep some of it aside and run a cupping of it and talk a little about Innovation in Processing and how we did this one. The casks are stored at Northern Lights, so we can properly demo our approach to this one.

3:50-5pm: Roaster & Barista Feedback Loops.
(Upstairs at Northern Lights, across the street from the Coffee Roastery)
Our experience in talking with coffee shops is that they get too little support from Roasters and often Roasters don’t get the feedback they desire from coffee shops. Based around developing shared expectations and a common language, we ask, 'how can both Roasters and Baristas together help to deliver the best coffee experience for their customers?'.

5-7pm: Barista & Roaster Decompression Session - Beer Tasting
(Downstairs at Northern Lights, across the street from the Coffee Roastery)
A fantastic Irish micro-brewery called Whiplash are doing a tap-takeover downstairs and everyone would be welcome to head downstairs directly after to sample some great Irish craft beer.
