What I Know About Running Coffee Shops is drawn from personal experience. Colin Harmon built 3fe from a one-man coffee cart in a nightclub lobby to the internationally renowned business it is today. The lessons, stories and guidelines in this richly illustrated book offer a unique and honest insight into the day-to-day realities of what many people see as their dream job.
Colin Harmon is a four-time Irish Barista Champion and owner of Dublin’s 3fe Coffee, one of the world’s most innovative and progressive specialty coffee shops.

We are a small batch roaster of traceable coffees based in Adelaide, South Australia.
To us 'traceable' designates two key things - quality and provenance; we only roast coffees of the highest quality and coffees that are traded in a traceable and sustainable manner. We feel as the roaster it is our role to firstly - roast only to preserve and highlight the individual qualities inherent in each coffee due to the meticulous work of the producers, and secondly - to make sure you know who those producers are and where your coffee came from.
We believe in an economically sustainable supply chain, wherin everybody from the consumer to the farmer is empowered. To that end we only roast coffees that are sourced in an ethical, transparent and responsible manner. We go to lengths to ensure all players in the supply chain are remunerated fairly and have access to the same knowledge - most pertinently those in producing countries, who are currently benefiting the least from trade and simultaneously bearing the most risk.
Together we can change that.
