Academy Espresso Bar is a specialty coffee shop with a euro bar twist.

Born and based in Barry, situated in a grade II listed building formerly a working Pumphouse that powered the Barry Dock gates at a once thriving dock yard. We are dedicated to high quality coffee and working hand in hand with our local roasters to provide a variety of single origin and seasonal blend espresso.

We only serve coffee that is in season, our team are always happy to share the stories of where our beans come from and the journey behind them. With a Euro twist we offer cocktails, fine wines and craft ales with artisan meats and cheeses. Academy hosts a variety of events with live music sessions, wine tasting, coffee cupping, business development meetings and more.

With high speed internet and power supplies accompanied with sharing tables it can make the perfect venue for meetings or mobile office space.

As well as great coffee, we serve a range of freshly prepared food daily


Academy Espresso Bar aims to provide the best coffee experience you can receive and if there is a drink that you particularly want thats not on our menu then just ask our Barista and they will be happy to help.
