Partnering with Assembly
We're a London coffee roaster motivated by innovation and the re-evaluation of the potential of coffee to create value at every point in its journey.
We believe that the input of each individual grows the whole and we work closely with leading coffee-focused businesses in the UK and beyond to explore new possibilities in the world of flavour, as well as how the value of premium coffee can be communicated more effectively.
We're a small team, based in Brixton, south London and you are always welcome to visit us.
The curation of our coffee catalogue is driven by purpose and impact. Every coffee is sourced with the ambition to create value for stakeholders and surface more sincere narratives for the speciality movement. Our partnerships with producers are founded on collaboration at origin across multi-year projects.
And we are proudly B-Corp and Carbon Neutral certified. We roast on a Loring S15 Falcon and a Loring S30 Kestrel - two of the most energy-efficient roasters on the market.
We believe that real value creation - through high-quality incentives and partnerships - holds stakeholders to greater accountability to the virtues of the specialty industry.
The seasonal Assembly House Espresso is the clearest demonstration of the value we aim to create for specialty coffee industry stakeholders, and the sincere narratives we highlight for the specialty movement. We source our House Espresso to celebrate the diversity of coffee. We source it to define what quality coffee is, and what that means to everyone involved.
By rotating the coffee throughout the year, we make accessible multiple premium coffees at competitive prices. And by working closely with the same producers over multi-year contracts, not only do we deliver consistent impact, we’re constantly refining and improving to dial in on the formula for the perfect espresso.
How the catalogue works
The objective of flavour descriptions in the specialty coffee industry is to highlight the unique flavour characteristics of coffees based on their provenance, variety and how they were processed after harvest.
