Take me straight to the main attraction


Our mission is simple: to make coffee better.

We have scoured the planet to find the highest quality, best-tasting beans which we roast ourselves to create the most delicious speciality coffees possible.

But making coffee better is about more than making better coffee.

From the coffee grower all the way to our satisfied customers, we are improving how we do business, making it better for the people in our supply chain and better for the environment too. We’re then using part of our profits to make life better for people in our communities.

Ethical coffee

We believe truly ethical coffee is about making things better for people and planet.

Read more about the steps we're taking in our case studies with our charity partners, our long-standing and fair relationships with coffee growers, and in our Direct Impact sustainable coffee report.


Making Coffee Better
For Communities

Grounds Up is a collective of charity partners and community projects which are supported by Extract Coffee Roasters.

It's an initiative we launched in 2018, born from a desire to work more closely with grass-roots charities helping people in our communities; the people on our doorsteps.

You can read more about who these organisations are and the work we do together, below.


Making Coffee Better
For coffee growers

We believe in building long-term, sustainable relationships with our coffee growers based on a quality-pays ethos. This means paying premiums higher than fair trade in return for exceptional quality coffee.

For more than a decade, we've been sharing knowledge and building relationships with farmers we are proud to call our friends.


Making Coffee Better
For the environment

It's not just about sourcing ethically, we believe in doing our bit to operate ethically here in the UK too.

This means recycling coffee waste into bio-fuels, a move to 100% recyclable paper cups, reducing emissions and salvaging old roasters from scrap, then lovingly restoring them to higher efficiency than when new.
