Colin Harmon x Toby’s Estate Knowledge Talks

September 4, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - September 7, 2017 @ 8:00 pm


Join Toby’s Estate for the next Knowledge Talks series with Colin Harmon!

Colin 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. His work in coffee has extended to roasting, training and consultancy as well as developing coffee equipment for the specialty market and beyond.

During the Knowledge Talks series, he will be presenting on key topics featured in his recently launched book, What I Know About Running Coffee Shops, including the building, the café, coffee, staff, culture and numbers.

What I Know About Running Coffee Shops is drawn from Colin’s experience in building 3fe from a one man cart in a nightclub lobby to the internationally renowned business it is today. The lessons, stories and guidelines give you a unique and honest insight into the day to day realities of what many people see as their dream job.
