“Best coffee in Cork”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

There aren't that many places in Cork to get a really great coffee but Filter is one of them. Scones and cakes are top class too. The frequent rotations of coffee from a few different roasters means you get to try a lot of different coffees. It's also stocks the best range (that I've found) of beans for sale in the city. My only criticism is of the price of the some of the beans - I paid €9.50 for 250g of 3FE beans - that's steep!

No better place to get a coffee in Cork. They have a real passion for coffee and it tastes fantastic.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

The coffee is top class here, as was the scone and jam! I was nicely surprised at such good value too. The friendly ambience & great backround music made me feel right at home , I would thoroughly recommend a visit.

“The best coffee in cork”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Filter by far, brew and serve some of the best espresso and coffee in Cork. The guys here know their stuff.

Always friendly, and always served with a smile too which helps. The barista's are always friendly and always up for a chat. Want to know about the coffee your being served, e.g. the height of the plantation? Ask and you'll receive the information.

Cork has come along way in terms of artisan and gourmet coffee, but still has a long way to come. More espresso and brew bars like this are needed. The only thing Filter lacks is space, sometimes its hard to get a seat inside and is very cramped.

Worth a visit and a trip over the river!

“Love to go here for a coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

The guys who run Filter really know their coffee. And they are lovely people too. I've had several brews here, and have enjoyed every one of them. Some of the best coffee in Cork.
