There’s something extremely calming about the sea. The waves lapping on to the shore. Sea birds calling out over head. The odd seal popping her head up to say hello. At Bean Delivered we’re regular dippers at Dublin’s 40 foot in Dun Laoirge. Nothing beats diving into the Irish Sea at the crack of dawn to clear the head and reset. Follow with a warm cup of coffee and you’re off to a great day!

This month we’re venturing further south, to Tramore, Co. Waterford, in search of fresh waves and Irish roasted coffee. And we’ve found just that with Trá Coffee Roasters.

Trá Coffee Roasters was founded in Tramore, Co Waterford in September 2017 by Tom Weldon. 

Tom’s job took him all around the world and he always enjoyed sampling all the various coffees wherever he was, be it in Lebanon, Liberia or Chad. Tom grew more and more interested in the coffees he was drinking and started studying about the different characteristics of each coffee and the natural next step for Tom was to explore whether he could source and roast his own beans. 

What started out as an experiment became a small business. Tom brings his keen eye to the process, an attention to detail in his selection of beans and his roasting technique. We hope you enjoy the coffee that Tom expertly roasts and we hope that wherever you are enjoying our coffee you get that feeling of intense freshness that you get when you walk on the beach on a cool windy day…..
