Description

Whilst our Warehouse City Espresso references Manchester’s industrial past, Graphene Espresso embodies the future of coffee. Taking its name from the highly versatile smart material developed at the University of Manchester, Graphene Espresso allows confident coffee professionals the opportunity to offer their customers an ever changing selection of single origin coffees specifically roasted to shine in espresso drinks.

Graphene offers the opportunity to experience the characteristics that are unique to a given lot of coffee from our favourite producers, rather than the homogenisation of mediocre commercial coffee. The future of coffee is not the blend. The future of coffee is the careful curation of delicious diversity.

Traditionally, blends have been presented as being the epitome of desirability in coffee. While there is some value to marketing a “signature blend” as some sort of flavour-based USP, we believe that the best way to showcase the sheer variety of diverse flavours made available to us thanks to the hard work of dedicated coffee producers is truly worth celebrating
