Introducing Urban 5 Espresso

We first spoke about it a couple of weeks ago… a little thing called Urban 5. Well, hannahnow we are ready to announce it properly!

To celebrate half a decade of Urban Coffee Co. we are launching our very own espresso blend. We have worked closely with our new coffee roasters and friends…drum roll please…Origin Coffee Roasters! Based in beautiful Cornwall, these guys are just fab and we have worked together to produce a blend which we think is something truly special!

Over the past couple of weeks the guys at Origin have been busy roasting to perfection. We had a wonderful couple of days in Cornwall to see the magic happen and Adrian has been working hard with all of our super talented urbanistas to get as many of our lovely customers to try this exciting new espresso as possible so that we can get it just right!

Origin are a bit like us;  small, independent but going somewhere – we both have BIG plans.  We are really excited to be partnering up with them. Again, Origin trade directly with growers making sure that:

“When you drink a cup of Origin coffee, it not only tastes great; you know it has guaranteed farmers, workers and the environment a fair deal.

Sourcing traceable, sustainable, speciality coffee and developing relationships between grower and barista is at the heart of what we do.”

adwWe have had a blast working with Union Hand Roasted over the past two years and we are delighted that we will still be able to use their fantastic coffees to put on as guests and filters!

With the builders now working round the clock in Coventry to get our first emporium outside of Birmingham ready for some brand new Urban Coffee lovers, it’s the perfect time to develop a blend of espresso to call our own; shaped and fine tuned by the feedback of our teams and our customers – the beating heart of our company – this really is a very, very exciting time for all of us and we are so happy that all of you lovely people have joined us on the journey!!!
