What makes our coffee?
GREEN BEAN SOURCING
We engage in transparent sourcing and purchasing of green coffee beans. All of the coffee we serve in our stores is graded 85+ points (out of 100) on the CQI scale, ensuring our coffee ranks in the top 5% for quality in the world coffee market.
We roast our coffee locally at our neighbourhood café and roastery in Hackney, East London. Our head roaster Ollie prepares and roasts each coffee in small batches to a unique and dedicated roast profile. You can find him roasting Monday to Friday at Here East - Come and say hi.
We create our own water recipe and all of our stores use reverse osmosis filtration. This allows us to control the mineral content of the water to ensure the coffee always tastes great and most importantly, consistent.
Sourced from our friends at Brades Farm in the heart of Lune Valley, a family owned farm run by 3 generations of farmers, Brades prides itself on quality and care for their cows and their milk has been made specifically for coffee.
Our staff are at the heart of what we do. Every barista is trained to SCA standards and their expertise with dialling in our coffee to exact recipes, extracting, steaming and pouring will ensure your coffee is given the care and attention it deserves time after time.
