About our Coffee shop

Nestled in the urban oasis of Lamb’s Conduit Street, we opened our Bloomsbury shop in July 2017. We serve our full range of espressos, single origin/estate filters, retail beans and home coffee accessories. Alongside the usual pastries, cookies, cakes and brownies, we have a simple but well-formed food menu, making it a great spot for a light snack or a bit of brunch to accompany your coffee.

For slinging shots, we have a gorgeous Slayer Steam EP. Affectionately known as Sally, she's one of only a handful of Steam EPs in the UK. She's paired with a Mahlkönig EK and Compak grinders.

About training


Specialty coffee should be accessible and shared not just among the community but with everyone who is passionate about coffee. We want to empower people to take their own coffee journey, be it opening a coffee shop, sourcing green beans or working with some of the big players in roasting or serving coffee. Our coffee school allows us to share industry-level coffee knowledge outside the prison walls with the public and our wholesale clients.

With an array of courses and bespoke packages available, there’s something for everyone, whatever level you’re at.

From May 2019 with our own two ASTs we will be an SCA training centre, too.

You can book your spot by contacting us at education@redemptionroasters.com.

Our Roastery


Our unique roastery is based inside the walls of Aylesbury Prison and is the heart of Redemption Roasters. As well as being our production centre, the roastery is also our raison d’être. It’s where we transform cohorts of up to ten young offenders at a time into specialty coffee industry professionals. They learn on the job, equipping them with the real skills they need to work in a cafe or roastery on the outside. Located in an old prison staff mess, the facility comprises three distinct zones, each of which form part of our apprentices’ ‘rotation’.

The Training Zone — featuring a Faema E61 training machine and grinders, this is our apprentices’ first port of call. New apprentices are trained by our staff, as well as their more advanced peers, in the basics of espresso, filter and milk. Only when apprentices have met the required standard here are they allowed to move on to other zones.

The Service Zone — at the front of the roastery, we run a small cafe which serves the prison community and visitors. Staffed by our apprentices, this zone teaches valuable customer service skills and gives them the opportunity to learn how a ‘live’ cafe works. For many of our young men, who have never been in a working environment before, this is their first taste of what it feels like to operate in a business team and communicate with patrons, a supervisor and each other. Crucially, it’s also a chance to hone their barista skills so they can impress potential employers on the outside.

The Roasting Zone — this zone houses our roaster, a Petroncini Speciality TT 20 PR (also known as Petra). Here, we devise, roast and test each and every batch of our coffee, ensuring we hit the perfect notes every time. Uncompromising quality is always assured by our head of coffee Marcus, a tireless pursuer of excellence, complexity and consistency. Our apprentices progress to the roasting zone after demonstrating exceptional aptitude and commitment. From weighing, blending, bagging, labelling and packaging, they progress to increasingly more complex duties, culminating in actual roasting.

Our Barista Academy 

We have recently opened a new barista training academy at HMP Wormwood Scrubs, where we offer comprehensive barista courses to cohorts of up to ten offenders at a time. We start out with the basics of espresso, filter and milk technique. Then, as our trainees progress through the three modules, we cover advanced coffee science such as cupping, latte art and alternative brewing. 

The Minister of State for Prisons, Rory Stewart, recently paid us a visit here. You can find the BBC London news feature on our press section.

HMP Spring Hill is a Category D men's prison, located in Buckinghamshire, not far from our roastery at HMYOI Aylesbury. We established an academy here in 2018 with our prison education partner Milton Keynes College. On average, 5 trainees have been gaining a Redemption Roasters coffee qualification here per month.
