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

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
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
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.

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
