The Assembly Espresso, as always, is the result of a collective process which draws on direct input from the best independent cafes in the UK. Together we have arrived at a 'brief' to offer a versatile house espresso which is characterised by clean sweetness but with a rich and balanced body - equally enjoyable either as espresso or with milk.

The El Carmen Red Association coffee is sourced in partnership with Raw Material and supports their vision for establishing a fundamental shift in how coffee trade is facilitated with producing communities. Smallholders are granted access to education and shared processing facilities then guaranteed a route to market and a price for their coffee which is based on specific regional costs of production (to ensure a profit). This circumvents the risks of prices anchored to global coffee markets and genuinely can deliver sustainable livelihoods for farming communities.
