Strong Man is back and it’s a knockout!


Six years ago we roasted our first ever Strong Man espresso. A punchy limited edition available just for winter and raising money for Movember UK.

Since then, Strong Man has become an annual event in the roastery. A coffee which we look forward to sourcing and roasting with anticipation. Over time the signature flavours we look for when selecting this coffee have evolved too. It’s become a coffee which is characteristically sweet with rich, sticky flavours - balanced perfectly in a punchy espresso. Our 2018 Strong Man is perhaps our best ever. In the words of our Head of Coffee “It’s a knockout!”

This year’s Strong Man is joined by Strong Woman and together they are championing the same coffee from not one, but two farms, one from Costa Rica, the other from Ethiopia. Embracing craft-womanship which can go into creating a truly exquisite blend.


We’ll be donating £1 for every kilo of Strong Man we sell to partnerships which we support in our communities.

In Bristol, we’re supporting Empire Fighting Chance, a boxing gym and youth charity just 200 steps from the roastery.

In London, we’ll be supporting the Hotel School, a hospitality training programme run by The Passage. Since 2017 we’ve been delivering barista training and work experience for Hotel School students and are so stoked that they are a part of this year’s Strong Man.

Strong Man will be available to buy online and served up in participating cafes from 1st November, it will be available throughout November and December.


We’re running a Strong Man pop up at Hart’s Bakery on Saturday 3rd November from 8am-12pm so swing by, grab yourself your first Strong Man of the year and meet the Extract and Empire Fighting Chance teams!
