Organic coffee


CERTIFIED ORGANIC COFFEE

In the cup:

Dark chocolate, fruit loaf and caramel


Soil association-certified, our Organic Espresso comes from an organic coffee farm in Honduras and an organic cooperative in Peru. This coffee is the epitome of nature-friendly: after processing, the pulp from the coffee cherries is recycled as compost and reused on the farm.

A slightly longer roasting time allows the natural sugars in our organic coffee to caramelise during roasting, giving this punchy espresso its delicious sweetness and big chocolate flavours. A magic coffee with milk, it softens with notes of caramel and hazelnut.

The Story behind Organic Espresso


  1. 30% HONDURAS & 70% PERU

    The Extract Organic Espresso you know and love today is a blend of organic beans from two of our longest grower partnerships, Liquidambar in Honduras and Sol y Cafe in Peru.


    70% SOL Y CAFE, PERU | 30% LIQUIDAMBAR
    PROCESS: WASHED & HONEY PROCESS
    IN THE CUP: DARK CHOCOLATE, CARAMEL, FRUIT LOAF

  2. RADEK'S VEGAN COFFEE CHOCOLATE

    In 2020 we collaborated with bristol based vegan chocolatiers, Radek's Chocolate to create an incredible cashew mocha chocolate using Extract Organic Espresso. The resulting chocolate bar tasted incredible with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel, and a delicious balance of rich coffee flavour and chocolate sweetness.


  3. INTRODUCING SOL Y CAFE, PERU

    Following tremendous success working with sustainability co-operative Sol & Café in Peru, we introduced organic coffee from Sol y Cafe to bring a rich fruit note into our Organic blend. You can read Sol y Cafe's grower story, here.

  4. A FARMER VISIT FROM DELMY

    In 2018 we were lucky to host Delmy at our London space for a farmer talk where she shared her stories of organic farming and the impacts of climate change felt on the farm.

    If you'd like to know more about Liquidambar, read their grower story which includes the work they do to protect the local wilflide and preserve natural forests, as well as the work they do to work protect local wildlife and forest, and the work they are doing to improve gender equality for women in Honduras too.

  5. SINGLE ESTATE: LIQUIDAMBAR

    We loved the coffee from Liquidambar so much in our first Organic Espresso, that a year later we made Liquidambar the sole producer for our organic coffee.

    Coffee from Liquidambar is picked, pulped to remove the skins of the cherries and then dried over 12-15 days to achieve an optimum moisture content of 12%.

    After processing, the cherry pulp is recycled as compost, with the Californian red worm's help, and reused on the farm. By selling this compost to the local community, Liquidambar not only fund the cost of Organic certification, they also ensure their entire community farms organically.


    FARMS: LIQUIDAMBAR, SAN MARCOS, HONDURAS
    PROCESS: HONEY
    IN THE CUP: DARK CHOCOLATE, HAZELNUT, CARAMEL

  6. INTRODUCING, ORGANIC ESPRESSO

    Our first iteration of Organic Espresso was a blend of two fully certified organic farms.

    20% of the beans were sourced from the Sumatran Koperasi, a collective of smallholders in the Central Aceh district in the Gayo mountains where rich, volcanic soils helped these growers produce complex and vibrant coffees along with other food crops necessary to sustain these small communities.

    The remaining 80% of the coffee was sourced from a brand new farm in the San Marcos region of Honduras, Liquidambar. Extract was the first roaster in the UK to start working with this organic farm. We loved their ethos and honey-process coffee so much, we're still working with them today.


    FARM: LIQUIDAMBAR, SAN MARCOS, HONDURAS
    PROCESS: WASHED
    IN THE CUP: DARK CHOCOLATE, BROWN SUGAR, LIQUORICE
