FROM THE FARM TO YOUR FLAT WHITE
– the magical journey of our EL&N coffee

The start of the journey begins with Pedro and his family team down on the Veloso farms estate in Brazil.

Here the team focus their passions on the diversity of their planted cultivars and distinct terroirs to nurture the perfect coffee cherries for our house espresso. The green coffee then leaves the loving hands of Pedro and arrives at our roastery, ready for the alchemy of roasting. Joe, our head roaster meticulously samples different roast profiles to unlock the full flavour potential of our coffee. Once we’ve honed the perfect roast profile, it gets locked in, and the roasting begins. Every batch is hand-roasted to our unique flavour profile and then shipped fresh to our coffee shops every week.

Small batch only

All EL&N Coffee is small batch roasted to ensure our head roaster Joe can personally oversee the quality of the roasting and beans. All coffee is roasted fresh to order.

Developing the perfect espresso

Throughout our coffee’s journey, the flavour is nurtured into the coffee cherry and then extracted from the roasted bean. Richard, our head of coffee quality cups each batch to ensure the hard work from everyone in the chain remains consistent across every bag of coffee that leaves the roastery.

Every morning our baristas dial-in our espresso recipe with the same care and passion as Pedro and his family on the farm, all for that perfect cup of coffee delivered straight to you!

We’ve expanded our range for you to enjoy EL&N coffee at home, with our capsule pods (Nespresso machine compatible) and ground or whole bean coffee bags all available both in-stores and online.

BREWING METHODS TO TRY...

We offer all five of the below speciality brewing methods across all of our sites as an alternative to our classic espresso machines.

AEROPRESS

The AeroPress is a device for brewing. Coffee is steeped for 10-50 seconds (depending on grind & preferred strength) and then forced through a filter by pressing the plunger through the tube.

CHEMEX

The Chemex coffeemaker consists of an hourglass shaped glass neck with heat protection wooden sleeve. Proprietary filters are added, made of a thick paper to allow the coffee grains and water to filter through.

SYPHON

A vacuum coffee maker that brews coffee using two chambers where vapor pressure and gravity work to produce coffee. This type of coffee maker is also known as a vac pot or syphon coffee maker.

V60

A V60 or Drip Brew is simple, clean and easy to use. If you're just getting into coffee, drip brewing is a great place to start. The inverted cone shaped funnel slowly drains the coffee through a filter.

FRENCH PRESS

A French Press (also known as a; press pot, coffee press, coffee plunger or cafetière) is an easy to operate device to make a stronger brew. These are very commonly used at home due to their simplicity and availability.
