Sarah was crowned Irish Barista Champion in 2020. With over seven years of experience in the specialty coffee industry, she's been an invaluable asset to the Bailies team, and we are so proud of her achievements.

Sarah made her first trip to source with the buying team in 2020. Together with Jan and Stephen, they met some of our farming partners in Ethiopia, where some of the world's finest coffees are grown.
These trips help to forge lasting links with the growers, and by sourcing the harvest ourselves, Bailies can ensure both the quality of coffee for our customers plus a fair price and ethical treatment for the producers.
