Discover the world's best roasters from a box at your door

When Ireland hosted the World Barista Championships this year, its small but vibrant coffee scene finally moved into the spotlight it has long deserved. Much more compact than Manchester or London by any means, the Irish capital is full of friendly faces who are more than keen to make you an outstanding cuppa Joe to get you through the rainy day.

One such place, that incidentally only opened a few months before the big event, is Proper Order Coffee. Located at a stone’s throw of the Old Jameson Distillery and away from the push and shove of Temple Bar, Proper Order Coffee is a cosy little place run by David Regan and Niall Wynn that showcases the finest coffees from some of Europe’s leading roasters, including key partners Square Mile and guest roasters like Koppi and Nømad.



While they serve your regular favourites like a banging flat white and excellent pour-overs, Proper Order also offers in-house creations such as their slap & tickle and the special latte. The slap & tickle regularly changes constellation and has consisted of things like a shot or Square Mile’s Red Brick espresso paired with a cappuccino that came with an almond finger in it. Definitely worth a try if you are up for something new and exciting!



There is no proper food here though, instead the guys offer a delicious range of freshly baked pastries that are delivered in the morning and offer sufficient range to fill any hungry belly with a rush of sugary goodness.

During the World Barista Championships, Proper Order was packed with industry people and foreign roasters coming in to check out this Irish coffee star who won this year’s Lovin’ Dublin’s ‘Best Coffee of 2016’ award.


If you happen to be in the city and you need a banging cup of coffee, don’t waste any opportunity to go see David and Niall. The boys are the bee’s knees!
