David McKernan has coffee running through his veins. A passionate and entrepreneurial man, David has successfully managed to create what is one of Ireland’s most successful brands, while at the same time being a dedicated family man and sports enthusiast….no mean feat!
Having caught the coffee bug at a young age, he wanted the world to share his passion for coffee, so he set up his own roastery in 1999. From day one it has gone from strength-to-strength, due largely to the fact that David has always stuck steadfastly to his principles. Quite simply, he wanted to deliver a premium coffee experience, but wanted to do so in a way that was ethical and sustainable, regardless of the cost.
David works closely with some of the best experts in the industry and by doing so is now in a place where he can step back and spend time hunting down new innovations and ideas, but most importantly dedicating his time to his wife and kids. Tennis is his other passion. He prides himself on being “one of the best players in Ireland”! He gives generously to sporting youth groups as he strongly believes that fostering talent at a young age is vital.
