The name of the latest Drury espresso coffee, Gunnery Blend, celebrates the Company’s newly adopted home on the Royal Arsenal complex at Woolwich. First launched earlier in the year as an experimental seasonal blend, Gunnery Blend has proved so popular that Drury has now given it a permanent place on the price list.
Drury moved its coffee roasting operation to the Royal Arsenal development in Woolwich in 2015. This historic area has been linked with the development of munitions for the army since 1546, so to celebrate the association with the area, Drury has named its latest coffee Gunnery Blend. It is one in a series of ‘signature’ coffees that also includes ‘Meridian’, inspired by Drury’s location in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
Gunnery is a balanced and well-structured blend of washed and ‘honey processed’ coffee from El Salvador and Colombia. This espresso is sweet and complex representing notes of caramel and pecan with a cherry acidity, liquorice sugary sweetness and a lingering dark chocolate aftertaste.
Gunnery blend is packed in one kilo bags, 10 per case with a list price of £16 per kilo.
