Story of Maeve

Queen Maeve is Ireland's warrior Queen from the western province of Connacht. It is believed she lived around around 0 to 100 AD and had up to five husbands.

Her most famous battle was the Cattle Raid of Cooley or the Táin Bó Cúailnge. The story of the battle itself was first captured in the 8th century, before appearing in a 12th century manuscript called the Táin. In the old Irish, Maeve's name means "the cause of great joy" or "she who intoxicates".

Collaborating roast partner: Allegro Coffee Company, Colorado.

Maeve's portrait is printed in Philly by our neighbors Marathon.
