    WICklOW COffEE COMPANy WINS TOP INTERNATIONAl TASTE AWARdSA County Wicklow coffee-roasting company has won three gold awards at one of the worlds most prestigious annual food and drink competitions, the International Great Taste Awards, held recently in London.

    McCabes Coffee, based in Newtownmountkennedy, was the only Irish coffee company to be awarded the highest honour in this years competition, a two-star gold award, for its Classic Italian Blend espresso. It also scooped two one-star awards for its Mocha Java and Finnbees blends, the latter of which is made to order for the Bray caf chain of the same name.

    Founded in 1995, McCabes Coffee is County Wicklows only coffee-roasting company. It supplies high-quality, hand-roasted beans, ground coffee and leaf teas to cafs and restaurants across Ireland. The company also appears to be bucking the economic downturn, having recorded a 50% increase in year-on-year sales over the past 12 months.

    Stephen McCabe, Managing Director, says the awards are a great honour for his small company.

    Our coffees were competing with some of the worlds largest and best-known coffee companies, including Java Republic and Robert Roberts, so to beat them to a two-star gold award for our espresso was something very special, he said.

    We put a huge emphasis on quality and consistency in our roasting and blending, and because were a small operation with low overheads, our prices are also extremely competitive.

    In addition to Finnbees, McCabes also supplies a number of other popular cafs in the county, includ-ing The Happy Pear in Greystones and Poppies of Enniskerry, and Stephen is now look-ing forward to growing the retail side of his business.

    We also sell direct to the general public and we are hopeful that this awards success will encourage even greater numbers of discern-ing coffee lovers to visit our new online shop [at] to experience the unique pleasure of freshly hand-roasted coffee from some of the finest Arabica beans in the world.

    McCabes Coffee is located at Unit 36, Newtown Business & Enterprise Park, Newtownmountkennedy. Tel: (087) 6777 658 or see
