Rocket coffee


ROCKET ESPRESSO

In the cup:

CARAMEL, BLACK CHERRY, LIQUORICE


We wanted to create a coffee which would take a house espresso to new heights. That's why we created Rocket. Ethically sourced, perfectly roasted and out of this world good.

Rocket is how (we think) a good house coffee should taste. Bold mouthfeel, caramel sweetness and a subtle fruit note.

Ethical coffee that's out of this world

A Story of Rocket Espresso


  1. ETHICALLY SOURCED. PERFECTLY CRAFTED

    The Rocket Espresso you know and love today is our best to date. Great with milk. Great without and deliciously consistent shot after shot.

    We've been sourcing Rocket espresso from the same partners since 2016. In that time we have experimented with roast profiles and recipes to create the delicious house coffee we roast today.


    50% LA MARIANELA | 50% SOL Y CAFE
    PROCESS: WASHED
    IN THE CUP: CARAMEL, COCOA, BLACK CHERRY

  2. A FRESH NEW LOOK

    In 2018 we gave Rocket a fresh new look, to celebrate the incredible sourcing stories behind one of our longest standing coffees.


  3. INTRODUCING SOL Y CAFE, PERU

    After visiting Peru in 2016, we selected an exclusive lot from the organic cooperative, Sol & Café, for Rocket Espresso.

    Within the cooperative, farmers have access to the equipment and support they need to produce incredible quality coffee and earn more. Project Peru was the perfect match for the Colombian Marianela, a staple in Rocket since 2014 and partner of Extract since 2013.


    FARMS: 60% SOL Y CAFE PERU | 40% LA MARIANELA, COLOMBIA
    PROCESS: WASHED
    IN THE CUP: TOFFEE, CHERRY JAM & CHOCOLATE

  4. SHOUT OUT TO LA MARIANELA, COLOMBIA

    For 2014’s Rocket, we added to the Brazilian Monte Cristo coffee from a new partner, La Marianela in Colombia. Since then, our relationship with the Dorronsoro family has flourished; their coffee remains a staple in the Rocket you drink today.


    FARMS: 50% DATERRA MONTE CRISTO, BRAZIL | 50% LA MARIANELA, COLOMBIA
    PROCESS: NATURAL PROCESS & WASHED PROCESS
    CARAMEL, LIQUORICE & COCOA

  5. BLENDED BRILLIANCE

    In 2012 we switched Rocket from a single-estate coffee, to a blend. Roasting as a blend meant we were able to guarantee our customers more consistency in the cup (and consistent coffee is exactly what you need in a coffee shop!)

    2012 Rocket was three beans from three amazing coffee growers. One of these was Daterra, the first coffee farm in the world to gain Rainforest Alliance accreditation which paved the way for increased biodiversity and pollution prevention in the speciality coffee industry.


    FARMS: DATERRA MONTE CRISTO, BRAZIL | FINCA SANTA CLARA, GUATEMALA | TRES NUBES, COSTA RICA
    PROCESS: NATURAL & WASHED

  6. Rocket Coffee has lift off!

    In 2010, as speciality coffee was becoming more established, we wanted to create a coffee which was delicious and fun, designed to work with and without milk. Something lightyears away from the emerging coffee-snobbery of the day. And so, Rocket was born.

    Our first ever Rocket Espresso was from the Zamorana Estate, a fourth-generation coffee farm in Costa Rica where the fertile, volcanic soils and a mild mountain climate create ideal conditions for growing speciality coffee.


    FARM: CAFETALERA ZAMORANA, COSTA RICA
    PROCESS: WASHED
