AntlerA new year smiles upon South William Street and we smile with it…albeit through chattering teeth. Cold though it may be, our hands are warmed by coffee, tea, and the pleasing glow of camaraderie at Clement & Pekoe. (Man, who writes this stuff?)

Our first mission of the year found C&P going through a bit of a face lift. We’re only 4 years and some change in, but all the love was starting to show. As some of our astute regulars have noticed, we’ve done the floors, spruced up the walls, and stuck a pair of antlers over the fireplace nook. Now isn’t that cozy? We had already started the process in December with our own barista, Tom, who did a bang up job on our new Coffee and Tea murals. (Such a good job in fact, he was commissioned to do art work for a cafe in far away Qatar! Rhymes with guitar. Way to go, Tom!)

But it doesn’t end there. Now don’t be nervous, but Clement & Pekoe is getting ready to upgrade the house blend. The lovely folks at Climpson & Sons have overhauled their Estate blend and made it that much better! How is this possible, you may well ask. With a bit of careful tweaking, beans from Colombia and Ethiopia are joining forces to make a punchy cup of deliciousness just for you. We haven’t pulled the curtain up on this most recent act as of yet, but get ready, because when we do we’re sure there will be applause!

Komucha1You may well have found yourself asking, “What’s all this Kombucha falderal I’ve been hearing about? What exactly is it and how can I get involved?” All good questions. And here are your answers.

In a nutshell, Kombucha is a naturally-carbonated, fermented tea drink, served cold, not unlike revenge. (Before you turn away in disgust, “Fermented?! Ew,” need we remind you good things come of fermentation, number one being, WINE! A close second, sauerkraut….delicious.) The falderal around Kombucha is that it’s good for your guts. Aside from being a refreshingly tasty alternative to chemical-laden sodas, Kombucha’s fermentation process provides some good bacteria for your digestive tract. Myriad health claims have been made, but because we’re baristas and not doctors, we’re sticking to what we know…it tastes good!

Even better? We make it ourselves! Our own barista, Erika, brews up Kombucha in the charmingly named, Kombucha Kitchen down at our second location on Essex Street in Temple Bar. Using our own Clement & Pekoe teas, Erika has devised some pretty tasty combinations, including fennel and star anise, dandelion and cranberry, as well as our House Kombucha made with Organic Sencha. Like a solo version of Shakespeare’s Weird Sisters, she bubble, bubble, toil and troubles her way to creating kombuchas of perfection (bonus, no newts or toads are harmed in the process).

Lastly, in answer to your question of personal involvement, get on down to Clement & Pekoe, belly up to the bar and place your order! Kombucha awaits!

Bank holidays aren’t just for punters, they’re for baristas too!

Clement & Pekoe staff will be soaking up the sun (probably not) for two glorious days.

See you on Tuesday!

Parklet

 

 

Ever heard of Park(ing) Day?? We didn’t until it came to Dublin via San Francisco, the same week Clement & Pekoe opened its doors in 2011.

The idea originated from San Francisco’s ‘Pavement to Parks’ initiative, a strategy created to repurpose the streets of San Francisco. David Andrews, who brought the Park(ing) Day idea to Dublin, fueled the discussion about our city streets when we first met him and we were all ears.

Dublin City Council have create Dublin City Council Beta Projects, an innovative way to improve our city. There are a number of different beta projects being implemented around the city which provide seating, bicycle parking, and art for everyone to enjoy.

South William Street is first to showcase the ‘Parklet’, so come along, grab a coffee and enjoy…
