Our Story

Velo Coffee Roasters was established in 2017, in our café, Café Velo, located on 3 George's Quay, Cork City. A strong interest in good quality coffee has always existed here. We source all our food ingredients locally in Cork and make as much as possible in house. And so we decided to take on the challenge of making our own roasted coffee in house as well! Thankfully this new approach is working out very successfully. We love our own brand coffee and we are excited to share it with you too.

We believe in quality, therefore we only source the best beans available and roast them to the highest standards. Transparency is important to us so we work closely with our green bean merchants to secure a direct line of traceability back to the farm. 

We roast Single Origins, and also have our own blends- Velo Morning Fixie and Your Pace Or Mine and Velo Yellow Jersey. You can purchase these and other coffees in our coffee house or on our online shop. In addition, we offer our own brand roasting subject to minimum orders.
