Causeway Coffee takes great pride in roasting only the very best ethically-sourced premium coffee beans sourced from South and Central America, Asia and Africa.

Niamh Coffee is one of Causeway Coffees newest coffees. It is a heavy bodied and creamy coffee with notes of sweet butterscotch, mellow citrus and a long smooth finish.

Bebo Coffee is their seasonal house blend. It is full bodied and syrupy with milk chocolate, plum jam and butterscotch. This is achieved by combining the rich, full bodied and chocolatey profile of the Sumatran bean with the sweetness of the Brazilian coffee and the big punch of flavour of the Kenyan beans. Bebo coffee won 2 stars in this year’s Great Taste Awards.
