Representing the longest-standing blends in the Drury collection, these coffees have well and truly stood the test of time and are just as popular now as they were when they were first created.
Our first espresso blend, created in 1954 by our founder Antonio Olmi. Perfectly balanced for espresso, cappuccino and lattè, this dark roast is smooth and rich with a long, intense finish.
Not quite as long-lived as the Reale, our Classico was once imaginatively named Espresso No2! With a higher Robusta content than the Reale, this powerful blend packs a punch and would suit those who enjoy a traditional Italian espresso.
An Arabica blend born in London during the Swinging Sixties, our Moka D’Or is perhaps our most versatile blend, perfectly suited to all forms of brewing. Deep and rich flavours throughout.
We created this 100% Arabica espresso to serve the needs of the late 1990s London restaurant boom, where its blend of strength, flavour and balance made it stand out. It’s still a star performer now with a smooth and sweet finish that makes it perfect for espresso or ristretto.

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:
For all paper filters/drip coffee
For electric and lever espresso machines.*.
For all stove-top espresso brewers.
For permanent filters and perculators.
For French Press or plunger coffee makers.
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.
