About Us

In September 1982, 'Poppies Tea Rooms' opened for business, and legend has it the owners chose the name Poppies after they visited poppies cottages in Bali.

Since then it has become a favourite destination for those who love tasty and wholesome country cooking. 


In May 2000, Peter Norton acquired the business and for the last 20 years he has developed and enhanced Poppies further with additional elements including a Take Home Menu and Environmentally Friendly Systems.


We look forward to welcoming you to our coffee shop.

Environmentally Friendly

 

Solar Panels

Poppies uses eco-friendly energy sources for the supply of electricity and water

Poppies has invested in green technology, it has a 2x2 twenty tube meter solar panel situated at the rear of the café that heats our water. The solar contribution to Hot water is 1156kWh per annum. In the summers of 2018 and 2019, the solar panel generated all of Poppies hot water needs.

Poppies has invested in long life energy saving bulbs/ LED lighting and uses sensors to ensure that energy is not being used unnecessarily.


Recyclable Packaging

Poppies is eco-friendly in many ways especially by making all take-away packaging recyclable and have ceased selling any products that use plastic packaging and only sell drinks that are either glass or aluminium cans (no plastic bottles ending up in landfill). Poppies only uses recyclable take away cups and packaging, compostable straws and cutlery and even has its own reusable cups. The use of reusable cups is greatly encouraged in Poppies and it offers a 25c discount when these are used. Since the introduction of the recyclable cups, Poppies have saved in the region of 92,000 cups from ending up in landfill.

Community Involvement

Since appearing on RTE’s Prime Time, there has been a lot of interest in the whole concept of rainwater harvesting. From a business point of view, we have also insulated ourselves from potential problems with the environment, the wild storms and heat of the summer can play havoc with the quality of municipal supply, but since the introduction of the rainsafe unit, this is no longer the case. Customers are fascinated by the whole process and are delighted we have taken the bold step. We regularly let people view the unit and are happy to explain the whole process. 


A recent innovation has been the introduction of the ‘slug free gardening’ initiative, instead of throwing away the used coffee granules, we package them up and give them away for free. As the granules have a ph value of 6.9 they are ideal for nitrogen loving plants and slugs hate them. It has also led to a 26% reduction in the cost of disposal of compostable waste.


Poppies also looks after the nutritional needs of a local pony by giving a customer buckets of fruit and vegetables that are not suitable for serving.

Environmentally Aware Customers

As many vehicles emit very high levels of carbon into the environment, many people have switched to public transport and also different modes of transport such as cycling in order to cut down on that level. With cyclists being one of the main customer bases for Poppies, it actively welcomes cyclists by providing foot pumps, cycle repair kits and a bicycle tool kit and of course filling up their bottles with recycled rain water.

Supporting Local & Irish Businesses

To keep its carbon footprint low and to avoid importing supplies from overseas, but to also to keep the quality of its products high, all of Poppies’ suppliers are Irish, the majority are local (bread, preserves, vegetables). Poppies also insist that all suppliers take back/ reuse its cardboard packaging, again keeping the waste of such materials to a minimum.

Harvest Rainwater

Because of Poppies' commitment to the environment and because of local water quality issues, (high levels of fluoride and chlorine), the decision was taken to invest in rainwater harvesting. After a lot of research, Poppies chose H2ozone as their partner in the project.

After the introduction of the filtering system and storage tank, Poppies were able to collect and harvest water which was much cleaner than other local water. This water is supplied to all taps and toilets in the café.


H2Ozone

Poppies got involved in the early Beta stages and initially only used the harvested water to supply the toilets. After two years of testing and various upgrades to the rainsafe unit, Poppies took the bold step of using the RainSafe unit to produce all its water.


Harvesting process

The rain water is collected via the roof and after an initial filtering is held in a storage tank, the water is then fed to the rain safe unit and is filtered on demand. If there is no rain the tank is filled using municipal (mains) water.  The unit can filter 50 litres per minute and can easily match the needs of the business.  H2Ozone patented Technology completely eradicates all harmful bacteria and pathogens from all water sources.


Push Taps

Poppies installed push taps in its toilets to ensure taps are not left running and wasting water.


Waste Water Process

Waste water is also filtered via the Grease trap (Big Dipper W-200-IS) to ensure oil and debris is removed before the water leaves the premises and prior to entering the system. It has the capacity to handle 1.24 litres per second.  This not only complies with FOG legislation, but it greatly helps the local water treatment facility.

Java Republic

 Our coffee preference for Poppies is Java Republic's blend Mestizo 

'An explosion of flavour that gives way to a round and smooth taste. Featuring notes of raspberry and caramel with a clean finish'.

50% COSTA RICA | 25% BRAZIL | 25% PERU

Carbon Neutral

Java Republic is the first purpose-built carbon neutral roastery in the world.


In 2008 they installed their energy cabin. This is a containerised wood pellet boiler which provides all of our hot water and heating for the building. They burn 13.5 tonnes of pellets each year which provides 60kWh gas units.


Since 2011 Java Republic is a proudly Carbon Neutral company. They were the first purpose-built Carbon Neutral Roastery in the world. Every year they engage in different projects worldwide that help combat global climate change and support local communities.
