Independent Cafés Across Dublin Will Serve Free Coffee Today

Coffee Cups

Dublin’s café scene has never been more vibrant, with little gems dotted across the city embracing the caffeine revolution. From committing to sourcing the finest beans to roasting them in-house or supporting Irish roasters, the coffee community is stronger than ever.

It is little wonder then that with the news of a 53rd Starbucks franchise opening on Crampton Quay, small independent coffee shop owners are joining forces to take a stand. Claiming that the expansion of franchises and multi-chain cafés is impacting the success of locally owned and run coffee shops, a group of Dublin cafés will today offer free coffee to raise awareness.


The participating cafés are as follows, and each will tempt punters in the door with a free cup of Joe in the hopes of highlighting how important it is to support these smaller businesses.
