If you want to know what we’re about, our Original Espresso is where you start. The beginning, end and backbone of our coffee offering, the Original Espresso is at the forefront of everything we do here at the roastery. Seasonal changes see twists and turns in the journey of this product, and yet the mission is always the same – an accessible and flexible coffee. Always sweet, always big-bodied and always with a subtle fruit note.
As seasons come and go, coffees inevitably change. The climate, soil, weather and farming practices all have a great impact on flavour. Therefore, each crop is rigorously tested and tasted, and new coffees become part of the blend on an 8-12 monthly cycle. This is so we can offer better and better coffee each year, whilst maintaining reliability and ultimately, great tasting coffee.
Last year’s coffee adventures took us to the counties of Jaen and San Ignacio in Northern Peru, close to the border with Ecuador. There we spent time with local Co-operative Sol & Café and their smallholders. High in the Peruvian mountains, each farmer cultivates up to one hectare of coffee for central processing with the Co-op, where it is carefully selected, sorted and graded ready for shipment to us at the Extract Roastery. This Project with Sol & Café has enabled us to work with very small scale coffee farmers, in some of the most rural coffee growing conditions in the world, and to bring their remarkable coffees to what we believe is the best incarnation of the Original blend yet!
Project Peru joins the Urrutia family’s Estate coffee – a honey processed lot from the foothills of the Santa Ana Volcano. Shade grown, organically fertilized and dried with all the fruit mucilage left intact, this coffee brings a unique sweetness and depth to the blend. Together with the ever faithful Colombian Marianela, and the pioneering Hernan Dorronsoro and his family, whose coffee delivers a distinct and rounded stone-fruit flavour to the cup.
Good with milk. Good without. The balance of hazelnut, caramel and cocoa makes for an unbeatable yet reliable espresso staple. Through milk, this coffee becomes smooth toffee and malted milk chocolate, still with a subtle red fruit sweetness. Always roasted on Bertha, our hand restored Probat Coffee Roaster.
