Our Why

Everything we do at Lean Bean is built around our belief in the old aged saying 'your health is your wealth', and we believe this starts with your nutrition. We think it should be easy to eat healthy and live a healthy lifestyle. The way we achieve this is by designing nutritionally dense, affordable and convenient products. We just happen to make great tasting food.

Scratch Cooking

We get deliveries every morning of whole fruit & vegetables. Our team then slices & dices, adds spices, herbs & oils, before baking or roasting, and finally assembling your order. This way our food tastes great and is packed full of nutrition.


It’s really important to us that we are clear about what goes into our food. We provide nutritional info via myfitnesspal and the calories displayed includes a portion of chicken. You just have to add a dressing and here we show the sugar levels because we know a lot of dressings can be high in sugar and can turn a healthy salad into well not healthy. You won’t find any sugar in our kitchens, if we need to make something sweeter, we just use honey/maple syrup.


We are always trying to reduce our carbon footprint. Over 90% of all our packaging is now compostable with some of the remaining being used from either plant based or recycled plant-based material which is 90% less carbon.


Launched in 2017, Lean Bean is a destination for healthy food served fast. To us healthy means real food made from scratch. Lean Bean was built on the idea that today people are time poor and the food on offer is of low nutritional value. We want to change that by providing real food, real fast at an affordable price. We believe education around food is very important to our success and that people are actively making more health-conscious decisions.

100% Arabica roasted in Birdhill, Tipperary. It’s a blend from Brazil, Guatemala, & Honduras. When the season changes, the bean from Guatemala can run out so if it does it gets replaced with a bean from Columbia. The blend is rich and full bodied with notes of dark stone fruits, cacao & roasted nuts.

We use high end equipment to extract the best espresso from the beans we use. This is combined with our expert Barista’s skill & knowledge, along with quality filtered water & organic milk sourced from Carlow delivering a high-end coffee we can be proud of.


We have a wide range of herbal teas by Niks Tea. Niks tea is an Irish company. Nik’s Tea is an award-winning supplier of imported teas from around the world. ‘With a passion for tea, we will go to the ends of the earth to find the teas we believe you’re going to love.’
