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

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.

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

Fresh from Colombia!

A few weeks ago we set off for a trip to Colombia to visit some farms we know, and some others we don’t, to source new and exciting coffees. The trip allowed us to further research some familiar places, like the Veracruz and San Pascual farms, test the new season crop, and bring home a better knowledge and understanding of what makes these coffees great. To that end, this week we are re-launching this season’s Veracruz Espresso... 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

Shoebox Gifts

Since last summer, when the situation in Calais intensified, Bristol has united to support the refugees living in the makeshift camp, The Jungle. From fundraisers to marches, people have joined forces to raise money and collect essentials to send, or take, to the French border. A couple of weeks ago, The Coexist Community Kitchen held...

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

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....

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
