Colin is a four-time Irish Barista Champion and owner of Dublin’s 3fe Coffee, one of the world’s most innovative and progressive specialty coffee shops. His work in coffee has extended to roasting, training and consultancy as well as developing coffee equipment for the specialty market and beyond.
Colin will be posing his thoughts and experience of running coffee shops as well as presenting on the themes from his acclaimed book, What I Know About Running Coffee Shops, including coffee, culture, and numbers.
What I Know About Running Coffee Shops is drawn from Colin’s experience in building 3fe from a one man cart in a nightclub lobby to the internationally renowned business it is today. From simple acts of genuine niceties to possible major oversights when signing a lease, Colin does so much to express the complexities of providing an experience that goes far beyond putting coffee on a table and gives you a unique and honest insight into the day to day realities of what many people see as their dream job.
