Tom Naughton set up Seccoto Coffee in 2004 initially focusing on specialty coffee. Tom developed a taste for specialty coffee when he spent a summer working for a coffee roaster in Holland. “My wife and I wanted to set up our own food business, and we had done some coffee roasting at home,” he says. Having bought a Probat roaster, grinders and quality control equipment, Naughton set out to respond to the growing Irish coffee culture.
Seccoto coffee is a high-quality coffee, with unique flavours and full traceability to individual farms and farmers. Over the past fifteen years Seccoto Coffee has continued to grow steadily expanding their business into an own label contract roasting model. Today they are the only fully certified own label contract roasters in Ireland. They sell directly to several cafés and to a number of large food service companies that sell onto restaurants. Currently they supply a selection of quality coffees to the retail and food service sectors around the midlands.
“Our beautiful coffees are all roasted locally in the heart of Ireland. We also supply organic and fair trade coffee too.”
