Coffee & Cocktails with Dan Fellows - Nov 21st


We had an incredible evening with Origin Coffee Roasters and Dan Fellows on Wednesday Nov 21st.

Dan Fellows - fresh from his recent win at the World Coffee In Good Spirits Champs in Belo Horizonte, Brazil was joined by Dan O’Regan, European Wholesale manger for Origin - for a cupping of their current coffee portfolio. We were lucky enough to taste some wonderful coffees from Colombia, Nicaragua, Honduras, Kenya and a special release washed Geisha from Panama.

After the cupping Dan jumped behind the bar & ran a pop up coffee cocktail bar showcasing 2 of his drinks from his routine in Brazil. His menu featured the Kyushiki - a Japanese Old Fashioned with Hibiki, plum liqueur, Jasmine cold infusion, Cachaca, Dark muscovado sugar syrup & lemon juice paired with a chilled espresso of the Finca San Antonio, Semi-washed, Red Pacamara, El Salvador.

The second drink was the perfect cure for a cold and wet winters evening - the Caribbean Irish Coffee made with Balvenie 14yo ‘Caribbean Cask’ whiskey, Chivas Regal, Light muscovado sugar syrup, Coconut palm sugar syrup, organic double cream & a brew of the Finca La Huella, Natural, Yellow Pacamara, Nicaragua.

An absolute pleasure to have the lads from Origin Coffee Roasters over & so great to try Dan’s winning coffees - a true speciality coffee champion!

We have loads of epic coffees from Origin Coffee Roasters still in stock - so swing by and pick up a bag!

Next event - BAILIES COFEEE BELFAST - Dec 12th for a cupping at 5.30pm - with Celeste Owens and Stephen Houston - bring you XXXmas cheer!!!
