Meet The Maker

Tommy and his wife Jennifer are well recognised and respected for premium coffees. As artisan producers, they are passionate about good, traceable, healthy food and strive to work closely to support other artisan producers throughout Ireland. All of their coffees are traceable and in some instances, they have visited the farms and met the farmers and mill operators.

For award-winning coffee in Ireland, Pónaire Coffee Roastery and Cafe ticks all the boxes. Since 2009, they have won over 17 Great Taste Awards for their coffees. They only buy speciality coffees beans that are carefully selected to create a full range of options that suit different ways of making and drinking coffee.

Only arabica beans are selected for their quality and taste, from sources that support the local producer, their community and the environment in a sustainable manner. Meticulous roasting, blending, and packaging at the purpose-built roastery, ensures coffee reaches cup or customer in perfect condition. Blends include Costa Rica, Indian, decaf, various European blends, and the delicious Fairtrade Medium Roast, great for daytime drinking.

Freshly roasted coffee is delivered to the customer as quickly as possible – at its optimum freshness. Pónaire can support all your coffee needs and they supply a wide selection of whole beans and ground coffee, as well as a full range of equipment.

In their roastery and cafe in Newport, Co. Tipperary, customers are served delicious coffees by their trained baristas. Customers can also purchase a wide selection of coffees which have been roasted onsite.

Other Facilities


Sustainability is a key part of daily life at Pónaire Coffee Roastery and Cafe. They can trace their beans from the farm to the cup or bag. When you buy a bag of their coffee, you will see a batch number that can be traced back to the farm where the coffee was grown.

Pónaire understands the importance of social responsibility and supports the local community in many ways. As a producer, they also try to support other local producers and businesses. They also sponsor the local soccer team in El Salvador where they ethically source some of their coffees.
