Barista Employment for Hotel School graduates
As mentorship and training continued with Hotel School, we were delighted to see graduates progress into barista employment. We start actively working with more cafe partners in London to create job opportunities for these graduates. Fundraising efforts paied for new iPads and classroom materials to help students move into employment.
We launch a hospitality summer school
In Bristol, we teamed up with Empire Fighting Chance delivering talks and careers workshops to local schools across Bristol, sharing what we love about hospitality.
Together, we designed a bespoke barista summer school programme for 16-24-year-olds here at the roastery, including interview preparation and local work placements with Boston Tea Party.
200 skateboards sent to Ethiopia
The people of Extract have long had a passion for skateboarding. So when we heard about skate charity Ethiopia Skate and a shortage of skateboards for young people in Ethiopia, we were keen to be involved. We launched a delicious limited edition Ethiopian coffee called Kickflip and asked the skateboarding community to donate their skateboard decks. We shipped more than 200 boards and spare parts to the Ethiopia Skate parks in Addis Adaba.
