A collection of things we love, things we do and people who inspire us.
Earlier this year we shared our thoughts on the Latte Levy, what we’re doing at Extract right now and how we’re trying to improve. We love coffee but we love our planet too and we’re serious about making positive changes. Read more
It's Fashion Revolution week which has got everyone asking #WhoMadeMyClothes? What better time to tell you all about Rapanui who prints all our t-shirts. They aren't striving to be more sustainable, their business is built that way. Read more
We've all seen the latte levy taking the media by storm. Here are our ten cents on the matter, what we're already doing and what we're committed to for the future - the best we can to reuse and recycle. Oh, and did we mention we now have KeepCups? Read more
We're hurtling towards Christmas like no one's business and November is behind us so it seemed like the perfect time to have a Strong Man Espresso update. Read more
The DO Lectures 2017 was a stunning experience as always. This year we sent three more of the Extract Team to experience this unique gathering of people in the stunning surroundings of Caridgan, Wales. Read more
At it’s best, coffee education can transform a business. It inspires and engages employees, and it enhances customer loyalty and experience. Developing, retaining and attracting talent. All these things are accepted as vital for business growth and success. So why is formally recognised training so often treated as an afterthought or a ‘nice to have’? Read more
The Extract Roastery team headed up the M4 to the London Coffee Festival 2017. We didn't stick to one stand this year and decided to team up with some friends, collaborators and customers and hang out on theirs. In between brewing and pulling shots, we found a bit of time to wonder around and find out what was buzzing this year. Here's a little snippet of what we got up to. Read more
Big up to Bristol brewers (of a different kind) Wiper & True who invited us in for a brewery tour pre Christmas. A great time had by all and some awesome shots from Production roaster Sean. Read more

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
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

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
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
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
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
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
