Canterbury Espresso Roast is a blend of El Salvador and Brazil Rainforest Alliance Coffee. It first became popular in a restaurant in Canterbury, hence its name.
However, it has since gone on to be one of our best-selling products everywhere, boasting smooth, rich notes with every sip. It is also, due to its certification by the Rainforest Alliance, considered an Ethical Coffee.
Ultimately, to achieve its brilliance, we use the latest state-of-the-art Neuhaus Neotec fluidised air-bed system, which primarily uses convection heat transference to roast the beans, you can see the full process on our How is Coffee Roasted article.
We then pack it fresh to order, ensuring not only quality but also consistency. Whatever your reason for choosing our delicious, invigorating Canterbury Espresso Roast, you’re in for a treat.

Coffee from Latin America
El Salvador, from where we get some of the beans found on this blend, is a country in Central America. It predominantly produces washed-processed Arabica Coffee, most of which grows at altitudes between 1,200m and 1,500m above sea level.
The unique climatic conditions found here contribute significantly to the outstanding quality of these coffee beans.
Then there is Brazil in South America, which today is the largest Coffee producer and exporter in the world. It accounts for a third of beans globally - 2,595,000 metric tonnes in 2016 alone.
Similar to El Salvador, most of its produce grows at relatively high elevations, with harvesting taking place between May and September. When we combine these two, it makes for a match made in heaven.
Origin: El Salvador and Brazil (Rainforest Alliance Certified).
