Coffee is an agricultural product and, like a wine grape, inherits distinctive characteristics depending upon its botanical species, geographic origin, altitude, growing conditions, cultivation and processing.
We spend a great deal of time roasting and tasting samples of beans from annual harvests to evaluate the flavour, acidity, body and aroma of each crop. The flavour profiles must meet our uncompromising standards to then be selected for our coffee offering.
Following green bean selection, the next steps of roasting, blending and cupping are measured and precise to ensure our roasted coffee retains every flavour characteristic and is always consistent.
Redchurch is our signature espresso blend - a medium roast comprising Brasil Santa Alina, Colombia Pescador, Guatemala Huehuetenango and Sumatra Mandheling. The Brasil is a natural, bringing sweetness and syrupy body. The semi washed Sumatra provides spice and cocoa, whilst higher grown Guatemala and Colombia origins add fresh clean acidity. Colombia and Brasil give the blend its characteristic sugar cane and caramel sweetness. The result is a balanced and smooth espresso that combines well with milk.
We have a range of single origins from small growers, estates or co-ops and feature flavour characteristics of distinction. Filter brewing truly accentuates the unique taste of these coffees.
Our selection is available to purchase online, in our Redchurch Street Espresso Bar or at our Roastery on Dalston Lane.
