Breakfast at our place for UK Coffee Week

UK Coffee Week launches each year at London Coffee Festival, so once we got back we opened the doors of the roastery to raise funds for the UK Coffee Week charity, Project Waterfall. We had delicious pastries from our pals at Hart's Bakery and plenty of coffee to go with. A big thanks to everyone who came down and helped us raise money for such a worthwhile cause. Read more

London Coffee Festival 2017 round up

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

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

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

Cucumbers & Coffee Chaff

A couple of weeks ago, our green-fingered roaster Sean drove the two of us out to the Alderman Moore allotment. It was a grey, still afternoon. The plots were empty and quiet, except for a black cat who picked his way silently over the vegetable patches. We parked up next to the shuttered allotment shop.... Read more

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
