The Block is an approchable and accessible blend, for both filter or espresso brew. It makes full-bodied short cups that are perfect for milk-based drinks. We love it prepared as a double shot cappuccino for an uplifting mid-morning break!

Redemption Roasters is the world’s first prison-based coffee company. All of Redemption’s coffee is roasted at their roastery inside HMP The Mount, proving the company ethos that ‘exceptional coffee can come from people and places you wouldn’t expect’. Existing to reduce reoffending through coffee, Redemption runs barista academies in three prisons alongside a community coffee school training people at risk of crime.
