A versatile and popular espresso coffee blend. The full-medium roasting profile belies its strength and full body which give it real presence in milk-based drinks. Spicy and sweet notes dominate before a very smooth finish.

After trial and error with the many Drury espresso beans we landed on this mixed 50/50 with Espresso Riserva. We chose it for a Rancilio Silvia and Rocky combination and we now have an Expobar Leva 4. Experience has shown that the best pulls require careful grinder adjustment and temperature about 1 degree below default (93 on the Leva). We then get consistent magnificent rich, powerful and slightly chocolatey espresso with a long-lasting crema. It gets five starts when mixed with Riserva!

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.

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



Filter Fine
For all paper filters/drip coffee


Espresso
For electric and lever espresso machines.*.


Moka Express
For all stove-top espresso brewers.


Medium Grind
For permanent filters and perculators.


Cafetière
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.
