Frank Kavanagh
> Director
Originally from Donegal but now settled in Dublin. Frank came to coffee after a career in Graphic Design so his mark can be seen throughout the company. Loves a good pun - or dad joke as we call it!
Peter Sztal
> Director
A Polish man from Krakow, one of the early settlers! It was so long ago that he actually came here on a bus - 42 hours, not kidding! It's fair to say with his Donegal twang he has gotten his feet well under the table!
Ian Blake
> Wholesale Account Manager
Another fine example of a Donegal man! After finishing his Botany studies in Trinity College, Ian joined us for a year to then venture into the cool Berlin coffee scene but has since returned to us... we're delighted to have him back and so is his wee mammy!
James O'Leary
> Head Roaster
Take what James says with a pinch of salt... (except when he's talking coffee that is!) one can never be too sure if he's having a laugh or if in fact he is just being James! When he's not roasting, James is playing some instrument we can't even pronounce... check him out Stomptown Brass
Aedin McAdams
> Sustainability Officer / Roastery Assistant
Another fine Trinity graduate, Aedin joined our team while finishing her Zoology studies. Starting first in our cafe on Pearse Street but has since migrated to the roastery... not a zoo but can be some days! lol As we are very passionate about running our business in a sustainable way it's great to have Aedin at the helm.
Renata Khedun
> Cafe Manager
Queen of Latte Art, Renata too has little room left in her house for awards! Proud Gold Medal Latte Art Champion 2017, 2018, 2019 & 2020 in Ireland and came 8th in the world in 2018 ! Renata encompasses, creativity, precision and the warmest smile!
Arvind Khedun
> Head of Coffee / Cafe
There isn't enough space on the mantel for Arvind's awards! He's the proud Gold Medal Irish Barista Champion 2018 | 2020 IBC 3rd Place | 2019 IBC 2nd Place | 2012 & 2014 Irish Latte Art 3rd Place ... you get the gist! Pop into our cafe and he'll be more than happy to talk coffee!
Ben Garrett
> Roaster
The protein king.... when Ben is not playing in his band he's off lifting weights at his local gym! It's a good job cause those coffee sacks ain't light. A cool, casual kinda guy is our Ben!
Paula Nolan
> Accountant
Fully qualified accountant with years of experience... there isn't much that can rock Paula.... cool, calm and collected is our Paula... still can't get her to drink coffee though so something is up!
Andrew Kelly
> Head Chef
Ballymaloe trained, experienced chef with a passion for fun, modern, healthy food with a focus on provenance, quality and flavour. Former NOMA stagiarie. Talk nutrition and weights to him and he's all yours!
Alan Byrne
> Graphic Designer
Fresh out of LSAD - Limerick School of Art & Design, (so now it's not just Frank banging on about design!) Alan looks after all things design and is putting a fresh shine on things!
