About DB Beans Coffee

DB Beans - Who We Are

David O’Connor and Brian Conroy became friends through a mutual love for running and of course coffee! We both thought a career in finance was our future but soon realised we wanted to invest our time in finding the best quality coffee bean solutions for home, the workplace and events. Good ideas always come to runners on their long run and this one is no different! The idea for DB Beans came as we chatted one winter morning running the roads of Co. Kildare.

David is husband to Katie and father of 4. A good cup of coffee was a necessity born from juggling a hectic life with little ones and the love of running. Finding the right bean for a freshly ground cup of coffee led him on the journey to start DB Beans with Brian. With a background in finance, marketing and sales, David wanted to use this to follow his passion for good coffee.


Brian has been involved in sport all his life.  Playing rugby & running for many years. He is managing director of Pop Up Races which are Ireland’s premier chip timing & event management company. Coffee time in Brian’s home is about 60 minutes before his daily run. Scheduling training, work and balancing family time with his wife Carol and 3 children can be a difficult task but it is certainly made that little bit easier with a nice cup of freshly brewed coffee fuelling the body.
