Irish Cream Flavoured Coffee is a delicious, indulgent treat. It tastes much like the alcoholic beverage of the same name - but without the fear of hangovers! We use only the finest ingredients in its making, steering clear of fatty, sugary syrups.
Instead, we apply science when it comes to its flavouring and the latest state-of-the-art Neuhaus Neotec fluidised air-bed system when it comes to its medium-roasting!
The result is, put simply, exquisite. Every sip of Irish Cream Flavoured Coffee is a true delight to the senses, offering rich, creamy notes from start to finish.
It makes for an excellent alternative (or accompaniment!) to dessert, and should be present at the end of any dinner party. Best of all, we pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory, ensuring quality and consistency time and time again.

Origins of Irish Coffee
Traditional Irish Coffee (known in Ireland as “Caife Gaelach”) is a cocktail that uses hot Coffee, Irish whiskey, sugar and cream. This combination of Coffee and alcohol, as well as all the extras, makes for a match made in heaven.
Its flavour notes differ significantly depending on the type of whiskey/Coffee used, although most consider it smooth and sweet. Naturally, it also comes with a kick!
Unlike many cocktails, Irish Coffee has known and detailed origins. It was created by Joe Sheridan, a chef at Foynes Airport in Limerick, Ireland, in 1943.
At this time, during the Second World War, Foynes was an airbase for transatlantic flights to Canada and the US. Often, political figures and Hollywood stars would stop here for the night en route.
One evening, Mr Sheridan found himself serving a group of cold, weary, frustrated passengers whose flight had been delayed. Feeling empathy for them, he decided to make something special to try and cheer them up.
Passengers needed a pick-me-up, but no doubt also wanted a stiff drink. And so the thought occurred to combine the two!
One American passenger asked whether the cuppa in front of them was a Brazillian Coffee. The story goes that Joe replied: “no, it’s Irish”. Suffice to say, everyone in the restaurant that night was pleasantly surprised. Irish Coffee was born! And eventually, so was our Irish Cream Flavoured Coffee.
