Syphon on Courthouse Lane.

IT’S been open over a month now and already people are loving the artistic decor and tasty coffee at a new business in Tralee.

Syphon Coffee Bar & Lounge is located at the corner of Courthouse Lane (where French Flair used to trade) and the emphasis here is on quality coffee in cool surroundings.

The walls are adorned with wonderful and unusual pieces of art, prints of famous artists’ work and origami, with vintage furniture of distinct styles, while the music playing in the background is equally as eclectic. In fact it almost has the feel of having a coffee in an post-modern, pop-art gallery.

But it’s all about the coffee really, as the owner Stewart Lyons, explains.

“Coffee is at the core of what we do. We get our coffee from the expert baristas, ‘Bean’ in Dingle and we’re the only people in town with their product. I think we’re doing something very different here,” said Stewart, who formerly had the lease on Roundy’s Bar.

Manager and Head Barista in Syphon is Edwin Byrne, who has worked in Ballyseedy Garden Centre, The Roast House, The Bookshelf and in Maddens before coming on board with Syphon so he knows his stuff.

Edwin also makes different types of coffee using special techniques, including syphoning as can be seen in this time lapse video below…

Syphon also serve a selection of sweet and savoury treats to go with the coffee.  Also, on Sundays during September, there’s Tai Chi Classes from 11am to 12noon costing €10, including a Bean Dingle coffee or tea/herbal tea.

They also have a number of plans for the coffee bar and more will be revealed in the coming months.

So if you’re in town and fancy an amazing coffee in cool surroundings, make out Syphon on Courthouse Lane and you won’t be disappointed.
