About us

We are a specialty coffee roastery located in Co Wicklow, Ireland. We take pride in handcrafting small batches of coffee from the world's best and most sustainable sources.

Specialty Coffee Roastery

As a premium specialty coffee roastery in Ireland we are dedicated to providing customers with a superior coffee experience, from sourcing the beans to the final brewing process.

Q Graders we work with, both here and abroad, grade the quality of our coffee with a score out of 100. Specialty Coffee must score 80 or above. The majority of our coffees score between +85 and +90 and some in the +90 to +92 range. All our coffee is 100% Arabica.

Our coffee beans are ethically and sustainably sourced, and the roasting techniques bring out each unique flavour and characteristic of each varietal.

McCabe’s Coffee offers a variety of blends and single-origin coffees, as well as a coffee subscription service for those who want to receive fresh beans regularly.

Commitment to Quality

Quality is vital to our ethos: quality of product and of service. We roast each day and deliver after resting the coffee, to ensure that the customer receives the freshest flavour and highest quality.

We are committed to outstanding taste, service, and reliability. Our aim is to strengthen our brand of quality and sustainability in Ireland with customers who have a passion for seriously good coffee.

Sustainability

Every year since 2020, our sustainability consultants
have calculated our carbon footprint. This includes Scope 1,2 and 3 analysis. Our aim is to take action each year to reduce this and to date we have:

  • Changed 50% of our fleet to fully electric vehicles.
  • Increased our certified organic purchases to 28%. These coffees are typically grown below trees and no carbon rich fertilisers or pesticides are used.
  • Changed all our leaf tea packaging to be 100% recyclable and will change all retail and online coffee packaging to recyclable in 2023. 
  • Launched our reusable drums using no packaging. 
  • No trips to origin by plane and have developed relationships with our growers via video calls, WhatsApp groups and donations for equipment. 

The remaining calculated carbon is offset with tree planting projects both here in Ireland with HomeTree, Jack’s Mill near our roastery and with
Tree-Nation - The worldwide platform
to plant trees.
in Tanzania as part of our 1% FOR OUR PLANET programme.

 We have set firm goals to reduce our carbon footprint with our partners Origin Green who audit the business annually.

WORKING TOGETHER FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

1% FOR OUR PLANET

VIEW OUR 2023 SUSTAINABILITY REPORT

    The farmers who grow our coffee must receive a fair price. We have built close relationships with these farmers over the years, visiting when we can and contacting them each year to agree a price that is fair.

    Prior to contracting we ensure:

    1. 1. The price paid to farmers supplying cooperatives provides a fair living income and the price paid for pickers is at least the legal minimum wage in that country
    2. 2. Water, sanitation, and accommodation must be provided on the farms
    3. 3. Confirmation that no underage workers work on the farms.

1% FOR OUR PLANET

Our goals go beyond achieving net-zero carbon emissions for our own company to create an environmental benefit by removing additional carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

As a business, this has to be as important as supplying a good product. The more we sell, the more we commit to help.

Since 2019, we have worked hard to offset more carbon than we produce for scope 1, 2 and the majority of scope 3 analysis.

We are proud to be members of Origin Green who will audit us annually on what we as a business say and do.

Yes, we’re just a drop in the ocean but we have to do something.

Transportation of coffee is actually a very small part of its carbon footprint. The majority of the carbon footprint of coffee is weighted at both ends - by fertilizers used on the farms and electricity used by coffee machines.

Organic coffee uses no fertilizers and reduces the carbon footprint by 19%. For this reason, each year we commit to purchase more certified organic coffee.

Reducing our climate impact is our main sustainability goal. Each year, we invest in climate positive projects for our own business.

This year we invested in an array of solar panels on the roastery roof. Next year we will be replacing more of the diesel delivery vehicles with electric.

All online packaging is fully recyclable and our low carbon certified organic coffee range continues to grow in line with our audited Origin Green commitments. In late 2022, we launched our reusable coffee drums. These are now available in 6 and 12kg in our most popular coffees. Our products are delivered in 100% recyclable boxes made from FSC certified cardboard with water-based ink print.

Unfortunately, there is always some carbon footprint leftover but this should reduce with the projects above. Offsetting the remaining footprint to date has been with tree planting with projects here in Ireland and with Tree Nation in Tanzania.

Each year, we commit to giving 1% FOR OUR PLANET. We give 1% of annual revenue to carbon reducing projects with The Gold Standard Foundation, Tree Nation, Hometree and local projects at our roastery and in our community . This 1% is to offset our own emissions and more.

We commit to publish and regularly update our annual project costs below.

Working Towards Sustainable Native Woodland Conservation in Ireland

We’ve teamed up with Hometree, an Irish charity whose work is to establish and conserve permanent native woodland in Ireland, encouraging land regeneration and biodiversity through afforestation, restoration and education.

Together with our partners Tree Nation planting trees between the Tropics, we now have planted over 7000 trees. Our annual tree planting projects offset more than our carbon footprint and improves bio-diversity in these areas. All of the tree planting projects we’re involved with have firm partnership contracts in place to ensure the trees are managed, protected and allowed to live out their natural lives. We will be audited annually for our sustainability by our partners Origin Green.

You can visit our forest soon in Milltown Malbay, Co. Clare.

Resposible and Ethical Coffee Roasters

We only purchase Specialty grade 100% Arabica from single estates and small co-operatives in the best growing areas around the world.

We choose to work with farmers who care as much as we do about quality, consistency, and taste. Understanding each other’s needs has helped us produce some amazing award-winning coffees.

Charity

We were the main supporter of Project 20/20 in Nepal. This was a poverty reduction program establishing a coffee farm for a community in Pokhara. It aimed to provide a safe living space for women who had suffered domestic abuse.

The project is a two-acre coffee farm which now provides an income for the participants of this programme, alongside 300 local farmers to create sustainable livelihoods.

In 2020 the first coffee cherries were harvested.

Danny Miller

Head Chef, Zest Food

Excellent

We started using McCabe's 13 years in our very first Zest Cafe. As time has progressed we have thankfully grown to now operating 5 Zest Cafes as well as our bars and restaurants in Shannon Airport. From the beginning McCabe's have been incredible. From the consistent quality of their coffee to the barista training, support measures and willingness to grow with us, has made this successful journey a joy. Thank you so much Stephen and all the team at McCabe's.

Joe Barrett

Laragh Strahan

Managing Director, Lolly & Cooks

Our customers love the McCabe’s blend

We have been serving McCabe’s coffee for seven years in all of our 5 cafes. We love working with Stephen and our customers love the McCabe’s blend. We are approached dozens of times per month by other coffee suppliers but none will ever beat the quality of taste, service, and dedication to their product as McCabe’s!

John Duggan

A Tradition of Exceptional Taste and Service

We have being using McCabe’s coffee for many years, from day one it has been a pleasure to deal with Stephen. It is clear to see that they are very passionate about coffee and most importantly, our customers always comment on how great the coffee tastes.
