The 12 Coffee Shops of Christmas is the brainchild of Johnny Northcutt, a college student and self-confessed “huge fan of coffee”.

He told DailyEdge.ie:

The purpose of the 12 Coffee Shops of Dublin is to get people great deals on incredible coffee while also introducing people to the fact that Dublin has a serious amount of quality, independent coffee shops.

“What better time to celebrate this fact than during the busiest shopping season of the year, when people might be looking for somewhere new to warm up and rest their feet?” he added.
