9th Degree Coffee was founded by James McCormack in 2016. James’ love of speciality coffee started in 2011 when he founded Dublin Barista School. Fascinated by the entire coffee journey from farm to coffee shop he started training people in the skills of becoming a barista. Using some of Europe’s best speciality coffee roasters in his coffee shop over the years in 2016 he decided to invest in a small batch coffee roaster. It was that desire to control the coffee roasting stage of the coffee chain to give his customers something really special. This was the birth of 9th Degree Coffee.
