We have been using Drury Gran Riserva Espresso coffee for many years now and find their coffee and service second to none.
the only beans we use!
We love these coffee beans.
I have tried most espresso coffees from Drury over the last 10 years but this is by far the best and worth the extra cost. A lovely rich flavour that has never disappointed me or my family. Great as a straight espresso or as a wonderful cappuccino.
For more than ten years I have tried and tested many different coffee brands – some purchased from London's most distinguished land-mark stores - and many of these at greatly inflated prices when compared to Drury's Grand Riserva. But regardless of brand and fame, to this day I have yet to discover a coffee blend which is more satisfying than this one. Nothing comes even remotely close.

Gran Riserva is an exquisite blend, offering superb rich aromas which overflow with silky smooth flavours, yet never with any hint of acidity or bitter-after taste. Time after time, it will deliver the perfect cappuccino or espresso; a flawless brew with an extravagantly rich dark chestnut crema, and a wonderful nutty finish which lingers long after the last sip is taken.

There is no better blend than Gran Riserva; it is a flawless gem amongst a plethora of rough stones, and I am delighted I discovered this brilliant brew which has afforded so very many years of exquisite coffee time. Brilliant!

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.
