Espresso Reale has been one of our favourite dark roast coffees since we came across the Drury shop in Covent Garden in 2013.

It has a thick crema and a delectable rich freshly roasted coffee aroma.
Drury Reale coffee beans for more than 20 years now. First by phone then on the web. Excellent coffee and service. I don't buy anything else.
As with one of the previous reviewers here it also took me a while to dial in but the end result was worth it. Very dark and smooth with a long finish made this a good after supper espresso for me.
I purchased these beans as i'd been looking for a dark roast with something which closely matched what I was looking for in terms of taste etc. I'll be honest It took a little bit of time to dial in the grind to pull a decent shot on the Rancilio Silvia. What I get with this is a rich and dark crema with a strong coffee taste, plus a little bite which I like. I'll certainly be ordering these beans again once my current supply runs low.
Being a coffee nut! who only gives an extra tip in a restaurant if the coffee after a meal is anywhere near this good! l experanced this coffee in my local restaurant and asked where to buy the beans to enjoy at home.

thanks Brian
My first coffee from Drury Lane and very pleased. Smooth but with a good edge which works well with milk and also as a straight espresso.

Packing & Grinding

With one exception (1Kg Beans) EVERY pack of Drury coffee sold via this website is prepared to order. We weigh, grind (if required) and pack your coffee in our heat-sealed foil bags which are equipped with a one-way valve that allows the freshly roasted coffee to release its wonderful-smelling aromas without letting any oxygen in, ensuring your coffee stays fresher for longer.

Packaging: Our 250g & 500g are currently LDPE 4 Recyclable.

We can supply our coffee in the following grinds, in ascending particle size:

Filter Fine
For all paper filters/drip coffee

For electric and lever espresso machines.*.

Moka Express
For all stove-top espresso brewers.

Medium Grind
For permanent filters and perculators.

For French Press or plunger coffee makers.

Whole Beans
For grinding at home.

* We calibrate our espresso grind using commercial espresso equipment to give an average across ALL machines and cannot grind specifically for different models. If your machine is particularly sensitive to variation in grind we recommend grinding at home.

A note on Aeropress coffee makers: one of the Aeropress’s great strengths is its flexibility in brewing - dose weight, grind and extracting pressure all have a part to play in this. For that reason one can select any grind from espresso to cafetiere for use in the Aeropress, depending on personal preference. For those new to this form of brewing we would recommend starting off with a medium ground coffee and taking it from there.
