A collection of things we love, things we do and people who inspire us.

Meet StickerApp

If you’ve ever been to the Extract roastery, you’ll be well aware of our general love of stickers. Oh boy, we cannot get enough of a good sticker! This makes working with our friends at StickerApp all the more fun. And if their goods weren’t enough, they’re also a totally rad bunch, and we wanna tell you all about them… Read more

Roll up, roll up – the Strong Man is coming to town

We're stoked to announce that the Strong Man is coming back to town as our autumnal espresso, and he's promising a show like never before.
This year our Strong Man Espresso takes us to Southern Honduras and to the farm of Santos Guevara Lopez. And as always we'll be raising funds and awareness for our long term charity partner; the Movember Foundation. Read more

An evening with Boyce Harries: Chania Estate (Kenya)

This month we were fortunate to have a very special guest fly across continents to come and visit little old us at the roastery. Here at Extract Coffee Roasters we put a huge emphasis on the importance of provenance. Knowing where our beans have come from, how they were grown, and learning about the people who have had an input into their journey from crop to cup is as important to us as our responsibility to creating a top-notch product.

Our Time to DO: A Weekend in West Wales

At Extract Coffee Roasters, we consider ourselves exceptionally lucky to have friends like The DO Lectures. Established in 2008, The DO Lectures bring people together to talk, share, listen and inspire. Today, DO events are held across three continents; the UK, USA and Australia, and all endeavour to follow the same DO formula: ideas + energy = change. Read more

Millican x Extract: Making Coffee Better

During a chat with the team at Millican, we were asked about our mission; to make coffee better. It's simple enough. But perhaps we don't explain nearly enough how it is that we do this.

So to remedy that, we're partnering up with Millican once again and are asking everyone how they "make coffee better". Share your moments and win an awesome Millican Connoisseur Coffee Kit and a sweet Extract Coffee Roasters t-shirt. Ready more about you how can get involved here. Read more

Summer Lovin’

It’s official. It’s summertime. We’ve passed the longest day of the year and now we’re ready for summer. So get out the shorts, organise the barbecues, and keep the umbrella close at hand… just in case. But here at Extract even a rainy day can’t dampen our spirits because we’re STOKED about our new, fresh season of Single Origin coffees all ready to roast and perfect for summer! Read more

5 Reasons Why We Love Colombia

Today we wish Ashlee, our brilliant Production Roaster, a bon voyage as she sets off on an exciting journey to learn all about the journey of our coffee. A meta-journey if you will. Ash will be spending time on one of the origin farms, based in Colombia... Read more

Extract x Millican: 50th Ascent Coffee

What goes hand-in-hand with adventure? Coffee, naturally! (In our humble opinion.) So when our friends at Millican told us they wanted to create coffee for travellers, we jumped at the opportunity to get involved with the Millican Coffee Club. This guest post comes from the team at Millican about their experience working with us and the motivation to create the new 50th Ascent coffee. Take it away Millican... Read more

New Coffee – Rwandan Mbilima

The lot is produced by the Musasa Dukunde Washing Station, one of the highest mills in Rwanda at a staggering 2020 metres above sea level. Here, coffee cherries are centrally processed from neighbouring small holders. Most of whom have seen their income from coffee at least double since the proliferation of this style of processing....

Dancing at Dawn

Last Thursday, Extract teamed up with New Dawn Traders to transform the roastery in to a tropical den. Multi-coloured African fabrics hung low from the warehouse walls and paper palm trees were assembled to help create a temporary illusion that we were really partying in the tropics. Outside, bikes lined the icy road and a... Read more

Extract Cinema Club

Last Wednesday we hosted our first Extract Cinema Club. We lined the walls of our bunker with fairy lights, dragged the comfy sofas in and covered the floor with a huge pile of cushions and blankets. Buttery popcorn was served in coffee bags and White Russians were sipped as the Dude drank his and lay... Read more

Big O Donuts’ New HQ

Tucked down the back of the Clay Hill trading estate, the Big O Donut Company have taken on a new location to work their icing sugared magic. Last Thursday, a group of us gathered in the lobby of their new premises. The room was decorated like a festive 1970′s living room; fairy lights hung from... Read more

Campus and Coffee

On Saturday the guys from Campus Skateparks took over the roastery. There was a great vibe; skateboards clattered against the ramp in rallying support of jumps and tricks, people sipped coffee whilst browsing through the campus kit and kids pushed on their tiptoes to get a better look. Both with backgrounds in youth work, Andre... Read more

Movember Launch Party 2015

Last Wednesday we were lucky enough to be invited to the Movember 2015 Launch Party.

Hidden between buildings off Bermondsey St, the courtyard was lit with coloured bulbs and the party was in full swing. Sweatband dancers grooved in the pink light beneath silhouettes of ballooned moustaches... Read more

South West Coffee Guide Volume II

On Friday 16th October the brand spanking new edition of the South West Coffee Guide was launched and Extract Coffee were more than happy to once again allow the roastery floor to be taken over for the launch party. A dizzying cacophony of food, beer, good music, a latte art competition and a whole lot of coffee related... Read more
