The Golden Bean is an artisan coffee roastery based in Shanagarry, Cork.

Originally opened by Marc Kingston in a tiny cottage on the grounds of Ballymaloe some six years ago, the Golden Bean's goal has always been to source, roast and supply the most ethically produced beans from around the world.

Roasting operations are now split between two roasting rooms with our faithful old Probat L5 occupying the cottage and our Giesen W15 filling out our new location tucked behind sheds and barns in Ballymaloe.

"It's all in the cup" defines everything we do as we feel the best cups of coffee fully express and respect the care and attention that has gone into cultivating, harvesting, processing and roasting each bean.

You can sample and buy our coffee in a variety of cafés around Ireland (see our Facebook page) or you can get it directly from us at our stall at Mahon and Douglas Farmer's Markets around Cork on Thursdays and Saturdays respectively.




We proudly supplier over 30 independent business with freshly roasted single origin coffee. Visit one of these beautiful establishments to try a cup of ours!
