Why did we start our own roasting company? Here's why... - Brady's Coffee

Myself and my brother Darren had a vision for a coffee company we always wanted to start. For as long as I remember I have had a love of coffee, getting into home roasting 15 years ago, progressing this hobby to a small 1kg commercial roaster out the back of the family business. I would finish work and go into my ‘roastery’ (tin shed) and roast for a few hours trying to progress every aspect of it.

In 2017, after many years of talking, myself, Darren and John (our dad, the Don) decided to setup Brady’s Coffee Company. Darren comes from a background of company management and sales, he is also very good at hands on projects, a combination which is needed for the coffee industry.

Renting time on a roaster, we a launched Brady's Coffee Company at Showcase Ireland in 2017. We had a great response and quickly moved on to our own Probat roaster in our premises in Wicklow town.
