#8 | Coffee: Barista Champion Niall Wynn, Colombia’s Coffee Producers and Two Boys Brew

This week on With Relish, a very pumped up Harry and Aoife explore the mad world of Coffee, Cafes and Competitions. For a lot of people, coffee is just a part of their morning ritual; a quick caffeine boost to get you going for the day ahead. In this episode we look far past that, speaking to some of the country’s true coffee fanatics and get an insight into what is a truly booming part of the Irish food industry.

Niall Wynn owner of Proper Order Coffee Co. gives us an insight into the unknown world of competitive coffee making. Having picked up the national title at this year’s Irish Barista Championships, his eyes are now set on Seoul where he will compete in the World Championships later on this year.

Andrew Willis, a former commodities reporter for Bloomberg News spoke to us about his time covering the coffee industry in Colombia as well as the darker sides of the industry.

Finally, Taurean Coughlan of Two Boys Brew joined us In The Kitchen to speak about his transition from the Melbourne magazine industry to making coffee for the masses on the North Circular Road. After an extremely successful first year in business, the boys were dealt a huge blow uncovering plumbing issues with the building leaving them closed for 2 months. With the cafe due to reopen this week, find out what’s in store next for Two Boys Brew and their loyal following in Phibsboro.
