I first discovered 3FE while doing some research on coffee in Dublin. I came across an interesting article on another coffee blog , about an investment banker turned award winning barista, and his coffee shop Third Floor Espresso . After chatting to my local friends, I soon realised that this guy had already made an impact on the coffee scene, and everyone had heard of him, duh! I’m from out of town, how was I to know? Anyway, I decided I had to check it out. 3FE moved out of it’s old home at the Twisted Pepper , making room for Vice Coffee Inc. and into its new location in the Docklands of Dublin. The cafe is very modern, and alternative. Most of the furniture is made from metal piping and slabs of exposed wood. The cafe itself is completely white with red power cables running across the ceiling, occasionally hanging down with lampshades for lighting. Each of the tables had a small jar of jam, for those ordering breakfast, which I thought was a nice touch.
