EXTRACT COFFEE ROASTERS

Extract Coffee Roasters is a full-service speciality coffee business fanatically sourcing and meticulously roasting some of the best coffees on earth.  Independently owned and supported by an absolutely incredible team, we deliver freshly roasted coffee to people's homes and to some of the best cafes, restaurants and hotels in the UK.

Like all good ideas, we began with one simple mission; make coffee better. Make coffee as good as it can possibly be, even. We’re by no means the kind of trumpet blowers who would admit to already achieving this kind of impossible feat. But, with more knowledge, passion, and great sourcing, we find better coffees, roast them better, and ultimately brew better. It is an unending endeavour, and one we love being a part of.

WHAT IS SPECIALITY COFFEE?

Speciality coffee refers to coffee that is grown and farmed in optimum conditions, harvested with care, processed meticulously and finally, roasted and brewed with a knowledge and understanding that does justice to everyone involved in this process. Speciality coffee is associated with delicious, well made and ethically sourced coffee. It is often used to refer to coffees that are graded (by qualified taste-testers, or Q Graders) and that score above 80 points (out of 100). However, it is important to note it is not a definitive term, nor a regulated one.

HOW WE SOURCE

Sourcing: At Extract, we want to get you drinking better coffee. Sourced ethically and responsibly from farmers around the world, we roast with both a passion and respect for the raw product. We believe that great coffee should be available to everyone. Our vision is to provide world-class coffee that will be a part of your daily life. From the morning ritual, to catching up with a friend. If we can make these moments in our day great, and succeed in passing this greatness on to others, we can be proud to call it what we do.

100% Arabica? / WHAT IS ARABICA?

Coffee species can be divided into Arabica and Robusta (almost exclusively). Arabica has less caffeine, but almost twice the amount of lipids and naturally occurring sugars. The Arabica plant is far more chemically complex, making it a more exciting product to work with. It is for these reasons that we only buy 100% pure Arabica coffee.

HOW WE ROAST

Roasting: Nine years ago, we started our journey in the most humble of roasteries, our garden shed. As we have grown over the years, our roastery has moved twice. We are currently based deep in the heart of Bristol, a city we are proud to call home.

The roastery is home to the workhorses of our business, our roasters. From our 5kg Ozturk ‘James’, through to our 120kg Probat ‘Bertha’, our head roaster and co-founder Dave knows these machines inside out, quite literally, as he has lovingly brought each one back to life through a series of restoration projects. It is this level of care and attention to every aspect of our craft that we believe sets us apart from the rest.
